There's no better guide through mind-expanding questions such as what the nature of space and time is, how we fit within the universe, and how the universe fits within us than 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 digestible chapters consumable any time and anywhere in the busy day. Astrophysics for People in a Hurry reveals 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.

"Finished @NeilTyson's mellifluous reading of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Lovely book. Last chapter worthy of Carl Sagan himself. " -- Richard Dawkins "Tyson is... the world's best science communicator." -- Times Literary Supplement "At just over 200 pages, the book doesn't have all that much space to cover such an intensely complex topic, but DeGrasse Tyson manages it with aplomb. In fact, this collection of essays... toes the line between entertainment and interest brilliantly, never getting too bogged down in fine detail." -- How It Works "... [Astrophysics for People in a Hurry] is not quite astrophysics for dummies; while it is simplified, it is not simple. It is more a collection of the best and most thrilling moments; astrophysics' greatest hits." -- The Guardian "... this introductory guide to the mysteries of the cosmos is genuinely accessible." -- Summer Reading 2017 - The Sunday Times "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." -- Chemistry World "Tyson is an entertaining writer with a startling imagination..." -- BBC Sky at Night "Written in a conversational style, this [Astrophysics for People in a Hurry] provides an accessible and fascinating introduction to a mindbending subject." -- Summer's Hottest Reads 2017 - The Daily Mail "Tyson has told the story of our Universe magnificently in these 12 short chapters... 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 Sky at Night "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 "The style is vintage Tyson - engaging, chatty and littered with historical and linguistic anecdotes..." -- Times Higher Education
