covered the big topics they mention on Big Bang Theory. He has a good sense of humor
I love Neil DeGrasse Tyson, but his reading of his book can put youto sleep Make sure you’re paying full attention because missing a phrase or two can get you totally lost.
This a GREAT appetizer into the wonderful world of Astrophysics I'm now hungry to learn so much more!!!
Worth a re-listen
Interesting. Although over my head my bit, got a good understanding of how everything came together
Neil explains the concepts very top-line but ALL of the root concepts are there. YES it goes fast but... read the title. It is SO great to have a scientist lay out the salient points to get familiar with a heady topic quickly. I think all readers (listeners) know they are only getting the tip of the tip of the iceberg... but... it is SOOoooo cool.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson is the David Attenborough if the cosmos, this book is not added to the list of things you must experience to really know your place in the universe.
An absolutely beautiful listen. Worth every penny. I wish it'd keep going but I guess that's what his Cosmos book is for. I highly recommend this.
This is my favorite book
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.
