An irresistible guide to the cosmos by the undisputed heir to Carl Sagan.

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry comprises 13 essays that appeared in Natural History magazine from 1995 to 2006, updated and expanded, with a new essay on black holes. It is concise enough to fulfil all expectations of the title but long enough to contain meaningful science made fully accessible by one of the great science popularizers of our time. Chapters include: Let There Be Light; Periodic Table of the Cosmos; Gravity in Reverse: Delusions of Centrality: The Cosmic Perspective; and The Greatest Story Ever Told.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist at the American Museum of Natural History, director of the world-famous Hayden Planetarium, host of the hit radio show StarTalk and an award-winning author. His books include Death by Black Hole, The Pluto Files, Space Chronicles and Origins.


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.

The #1 New York Times Bestseller: The essential universe, from a celebrated and beloved astrophysicist.
