    The #1 New York Times Bestseller: 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.

    • Exceptional book for any curious mind

      This book is a great book for the curious people that wonder about the meaning for our place in the cosmic scale. The chapters take you on a journey in which the narrative captures your curiosity but using very understandable phrases that are easy to follow for all readers, regardless of their scientific background.

      Great explanations on how advances in equipment help us understand universe. He bashes religion while trying to make pure science into a new religion with his own code of ethics at end of book. Science and religion can be two great tools. No need for conflict... Read lonely man of faith to see how that works out,

      I came from a background in technology but without the formal technology background. I've always been interested in physics and space and how did the universe all begin. Finally I can get so many details and explanations that I've never had and it filled in a lot of gaps. Probably the most insightful book I have ever read. JC

      A great way to expand your knowledge of the cosmos while you are on the go. A condensed version of his book Origins.
    • Perfect.
