Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry - Neil deGrasse Tyson

While I am in fact often in a hurry as the title of this book says, I probably would have been better suited to a book called Astrophysics for Dummies. Physics has never been my forte, so some of the more complicated stuff in this book felt a bit out there for me, both literally and figuratively. Yet I still appreciate Tyson's effort, with his light touches of humor, to bring astrophysics closer to the everyday person who might just be a little curious about the universe. Now I feel like revisiting my city's planetarium to refresh my connection to the cosmos.
