"Every page is lit up by an original poetic imagination but bearing the unmistakable stamp of a rational mind, steeped in maths and science."
--Richard Dawkins, author of The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion

"Handsome, gregarious and passionate about his subject matter, Neil deGrasse Tyson...meditates on what a life studying the majesty of the stars and the planets can teach us about how to deal with all the messy social and political conflicts bedeviling us here on Earth...Engaging as ever...He is lucidly down-to-earth and charmingly enthusiastic."
--The Washington Post

"Tyson has become the most influential science communicator in the country."
