Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is what you want if you are looking for a quick introduction. DeGrasse Tyson does a great job of making a subject that most people can't comprehend, easily digestible.

Broken up into one subject per chapter, he separates each concept and breaks them down. For example, he explains dark matter, an insanely complicated concept that no one really understands yet, in only 24 pages!  He does this is by explaining the effects, which is much more simple for us to understand.

This is a book to carry with you, and it can be read little by little.

If you are in a hurry, and a person, and have no idea about anything astrophysical Neil Degrasse Tyson has the book for you!

— From Alex M.

Description


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.
