I listened to the audio edition of this read by deGrasse Tyson himself - his style immediately makes it more interesting, even if it doesn't make the content more understandable.
This book is an excellent taster into molecules, space, gravitational waves, forces and all sorts of other mind-bending physics concepts. deGrasse Tyson keeps the reader engaged with interesting tidbits of information that are more digestible in each part so one never feels like they are being left too far behind.
After a while the facts and figures started to blur and I found myself confused, listening to deGrasse Tyson and catching pieces of the story intermittently. This is more of a reflection of my lack of concentration and general stupidness than any mis-pitching from deGrasse Tyson.
This is an excellent way to dip your toe into the zoomed-out universe that's all around us, and helps to give context and some answers to the royal 'why'. I loved it!
Astrophysics for People in a Hurry touches on the history and current theories that make up the fascinating and mind boggling subject that is astrophysics. From Einstein's theory of general relativity to dark matter and the multiverse, this book has it all.
Provides an account of the development of the Universe during the first fractions of a second. This is complementary to Weinbergs book The First Three Minutes. Useful treatment of dark energy and dark matter. Very readable
