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.
