Reviews

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
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
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.
Engaging and illuminating.
Tyson manifests science brilliantly....[his] insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist or educator.
Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will blow your mind....it is awesome.
