"A cosmic tour guide to the universe"... Micho Kaku

I didnt realise a non fiction book could have such a stunning cover.....

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.

"Tyson sure knows how to make science sound sexy, that's for sure. Decent little read, glad I read it and learned a thing or two. There are some really fun facts in here, ones you can throw in your friends' faces and sound really smart."- Jason
