Product description

Review

"The style is vintage Tyson - engaging, chatty and littered with historical and linguistic anecdotes."

--Times Higher Education

"Certainly, if anyone can turn the public on to the subject [of astrophysics], it is Neil deGrasse Tyson... In an increasingly insular world, it is a welcome window onto a much bigger picture."

--The Sunday Times

"Its success reflects a broader appetite around the world for science told with passion and conviction, outside of high school textbooks."

--The Guardian

"Written in a conversational style, this provides an accessible and fascinating introduction to a mind-bending subject."

--Daily Mail

"Degrasse Tyson has a talent for making very complicated concepts seem simple, and the amount of content squeezed into one short volume is impressive. He certainly knows his stuff. It takes no time at all to romp through a chapter as the book is written with humour and his descriptions verge on the poetic...If you already like space or Degrasse Tyson, you will like this book."

--Chemistry World

"...[an] essential guide to the universe...It's accessible and eminently readable in Carlo Rovelli vein."

--The Bookseller

"...Tyson is a hugely engaging and charismatic teacher."

--The Sunday Times

"Tyson is an excellent communicator. He speaks plainly and engages his audience with a keen wit and references to popular culture....Consider Astrophysics for People in a Hurry as a taster menu of a dozen courses, each serving a small morsel, a nugget, of knowledge to relish and to share."

--BookWitty

"Masterly...A sublime introduction to some of the most exciting ideas in astrophysics that will leave readers wanting more."

--Kirkus Reviews
