We all have, at some point loomed up at tge night sky and gazed at the stars in awe. We all have that yearning to find true meaning in everything. For those who truly want to find out about the universe or life in general should find this book very helpful. The marvelous writing storytelling of Neil DeGrasse Tyson is surely encapsuling.
No doubt I loved reading the book.. but I found most of the content repetitive as I am an avid follower of Neil de grasse Tyson..and he has written down what he has said many a times in numerous conferences and podcasts.
Well, I bought this book and read it, I have a lot of interest in Astrophysics and know the basics of it already. So, this book didn't help much. But, its an awesome book, regarding the language, topics and all. For beginners who are from non scientific background, buy this already. Its the best book for you and will develop your interest in Astrophysics. So, this is a must read hook for even them who know the basics, because of the presentation. Buy it already.
Some chapters are great, some not so. The book is extremely concise and small. One can read the whole book in a go. However, my advice would be to read slowly, understanding the concepts and sometimes taking help of internet to further explore the topics, author talked about. The true success of this book is it leaves you wanting more.
The best book for aspiring astrophysicists and astronomers. This book contains detailed descriptions of some of the most intrinsic and dark stuff in our universe, penned down with a little bit of humour by our beloved astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
