Product description

Review

Neil deGrasse Tyson makes a big bang with Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. — Sloane Crosley (Vanity Fair)

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 — Salon

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 (Astronomy)

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. — BBC's Sky at Night

Engaging and illuminating. — GoodReads

Tyson manifests science brilliantly....[his] insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist or educator. — Forbes

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will blow your mind....it is awesome. — Hackernoon

Infectiously enthusiastic, humorous and, above all, accessible....reading Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is both a humbling and exhilarating experience. — BookPage
