    “[Tyson] tackles a great range of subjects . . . with great humor, humility, and—most important— humanity.” —Entertainment Weekly
    Loyal readers of the monthly "Universe" essays in Natural History magazine have long recognized Neil deGrasse Tyson's talent for guiding them through the mysteries of the cosmos with clarity and enthusiasm. 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. One of America's best-known astrophysicists, Tyson is a natural teacher who simplifies the complexities of astrophysics while sharing his infectious fascination for our universe.

      I am a huge fan of Neil Degrasse Tyson and his work in astrophysics, and his work in helping to convey science in a very fun and exciting way. This book in all honesty will help you think about the universe in ways you never expected my whole thinking about the universe is definitely broader after reading this book.

      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.

      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.
