Product description

Review

Neil deGrasse Tyson makes a big bang with Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. —Sloane Crosley, Vanity Fair

Tyson is a master of streamlining and simplification....taking mind-bogglingly complex ideas, stripping them down to their nuts and bolts, padding them with colorful allegories and dorky jokes, and making them accessible to the layperson—Salon

This book will keep you fascinated with succinct and dynamic explanations of a wide variety of astronomical topics. A winner that every astronomy enthusiast should have on the bookshelf!—David J. Eicher, Astronomy

This may have been written for people in a hurry, but I urge you to take your time. It will all be over far too soon.—BBC

Engaging and illuminating.—GoodReads

Tyson manifests science brilliantly....[his] insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist or educator.—Forbes

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will blow your mind....it is awesome. —Hackernoon

Infectiously enthusiastic, humorous and, above all, accessible....reading Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is both a humbling and exhilarating experience. —BookPage
