Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry—Over a year on the New York Times bestseller list and more than a million copies sold.

What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us?

But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. 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.
