The essential universe, from a celebrated and beloved astrophysicist.
There’s no better guide through mind-expanding questions such as what the nature of space and time is, how we fit within the universe, and how the universe fits within us than Neil deGrasse Tyson.
But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in digestible chapters consumable any time and anywhere in the busy day. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry reveals just what you need to be fluent and ready for the next cosmic headlines: from the Big Bang to black holes, from quarks to quantum mechanics and from the search for planets to the search for life in the universe.
“Tyson is an entertaining writer with a startling imagination...” — BBC Sky at Night
“Tyson has told the story of our Universe magnificently in these 12 short chapters... 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.”
