An incredible book that summarizes an extensive topic very well and leaves you wanting to know more about astrophysics!
Great book. Love the narration by the coolest astrophysicist on the planet. Unfortunately, as much as I tried, I do not have the education or capacity for this book. I know it’s called “Astrophysics for people in a hurry,” but I had such a difficult time following along. Recommend you watch “Cosmos” on Netflix then try divulging into this book. Might give you baseline to work with. Good luck
Good listen and informative. Kept my daughter and I entertained through a few listens
Loved the narration, really great book, loved the idea that life could’ve started on mars then seeded on earth, loved the ego diminishing part at the end. Not my usual reading, but absolutely worthy of stepping out of my comfort zone.
I actually thought it was an excellent book but way too short to explain what Astrophysics is all about. Narration was excellent. To go through such intense information, 10 chapters lasting a total of three hours is just too brief. I truly enjoy NDT but this could have easily been another 10 hours of explaining what it was he was talking about. I did enjoy though!
NDT for President!!!! Great book for a beginner, he does a great job of adding perspective.
Fascinating read. Could have done without a few unnecessary curse words (that's the reason for the 4 stars) but other than that a fantastic book. This information really supports my belief in a Creator.
