Bringing together more than forty of Tyson's favorite essays, ?Death by Black Hole? explores a myriad of cosmic topics, from what it would be like to be inside a black hole to the movie industry's feeble efforts to get its night skies right.

Death by black hole
This is a great read for anyone interested in astronomy.
Very very good
One of the best astronomy books I have ever read. I'm not a big astronomy buff but I like to know what's going on, and this book explains things in the scientific terminology then he breaks it down into English. I own the physical book and when I seen it in the book store I had to have.
An Enjoyable Read.
Perfect book for a lazy afternoon. The author is very informative and delivers his packets of knowledge with a healthy dose of humor and wit. I look forward to purchasing more of his books.
