Description

Over a year on the New York Times bestseller list and more than a million copies sold.

The essential universe, from our most celebrated and beloved astrophysicist.

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 best-selling 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 tasty chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.

While you wait for your morning coffee to brew, for the bus, the train, or a 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.

Customer Reviews

Simply wondeful!!

Great explanations of astrophysics and the newest discoveries. All in terms the every day person can grasp! A must read if you want to understand the building blocks of the world in which we live.

A thoughtful read

If I’m honest, I did not understand every chapter in this book! That said, it made me feel connected to humanity and space and the universe. Made me contemplate my smallness is a very good way. I have gone back and reread several chapters, and know I will come back to this again and again.

Book review of Astrophysics for people in a hurry.

The most amazing book to which I’ve ever exposed myself. The author created a new world, especially spiritually to myself. A must read for everyone.
