This book was an absolute pleasure. The narration by the author was easy to listen to and quite engaging. This book covered what I assume to be the very basics of astrophysics and left me yearning for more.
I thought it was very well presented, and the authour reading his own work is always a nice touch, but he lost me at the end when he went far-left political on me... Keep science in the realm of science and political optics in the realm of fantasy where they belong. Thanks. NDT is a great advocate and presenter in his field, and is an excellent source for bringing subjects like astrophysics and cosmology to the layperson. He is well suited to this reading.
Great book but much too short.
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was pleasant to listen to, and I like the fact it was read by the author. It was a lot of info to take in, but I think the author did a good job at explaining everything. I will most likely listen to this book again.
So much info in such a short amount of time. Mind blowing wouldn’t be a phrase that does it justice!!!
This is a book I will listen to more than once. You can learn something new every time you hear it.
Loved the book but just like a sllice if the best chovolate cake yoy have ever had, it leaves u wanting for more. Carl Sagan and Neil De Grasse Tyson two of my favorites.
Read Neil DeGrasse Tyson astrophysics for people in a hurry excellent Not enough info I have to read more about physics now A good read tho
Truth will always prevail
An incredible book that summarizes an extensive topic very well and leaves you wanting to know more about astrophysics!
