Neil deGrasse Tyson is a delightful human who knows his stuff and is certain you can know yours too. Precise and detailed, he throws in everyday references just when you might get lost—stories about hot chocolate, and a discussion about why dark matter is our frenemy. Whether you’re a subscriber to Science or you’ve been too embarrassed to admit you slept through physics, this brief tour of the universe will have you smiling and feeling smarter than when you started.

— Jocelyn

Description


What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There's no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and bestselling author 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 anytime and anywhere in your busy day.While waiting for your morning coffee to brew, or while waiting for the bus, the train, or the plane to arrive, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will reveal 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.
