Astrophysics for people who want to be preached to Review by BestBookSales Customer
Tyson delivers a great performance, but Astrophysics took it back seat to his "cosmic perspective" all too often. I wanted to learn about the nature of the universe, not how it should make me feel.

Fast read Review by Christina Sanchez
The book was well written however I have no basic knowledge in astrophysics. I was hoping there would be a little simplicity but I'm excited to reread it after a better understanding on some subjects. I definitely encourage everyone to read it. But know if your someone like me your going to have a little homework.

Hear it In Dr. Tyson's own rich & resonant voice! Review by L. K. Sterling
I like to listen to his lectures on YouTube and this is like having a whole book full of lectures at once! The more I listen the more I learn and after repeated listenings I am beginning to feel like I know what he is talking about. It is not simple enough for people who have absolutely no familiarity with the subject, but if you have heard some of his talks before or seen his version of Cosmos then you will know enough to follow along. He's a born teacher whose enthusiasm for each topic is infectious. He brings real personality to his public speaking, and makes what was could be a dry subject very engaging and even funny. This one is AN ABSOLUTE MUST for NdGT fans, and will make new fans out of people who don't know him already. A great gift for anyone of any age with an inquisitive mind!

Enjoyable - not as understandable as I had hoped Review by CJFLA
Always watch Neil deGrasse Tyson when he is a guest on a late night talk show. The 10 minute segments always seem so easy to understand. This book, though, is way past my scientific knowledge and there is not enough simplification in his explanations. Many parts are still very interesting, but this is one book where having some science in your background will be very helpful.

Condensed, concise science meets social philosophy with humor and wit Review by Author Adel
I was expecting science, I got it. I was expecting meta science, I got it. I was expecting wit, I got it. I was expecting humor, I got plenty of it. Neil deGrasse Tyson delivered on all fronts, satiated my hunger for it all. Astrophysics and science in general are not for everyone but it should be! This book paves the way to reset our ego and places us in a framework that we are participants in this ever expanding universe.... a dust particle within a pale blue dust particle. Thank you Neil.

For astrophysics or science enthusiasts Review by A. Yoshida
It's a short book that could be finished in three days. The author attempts to give a concise explanation of the big bang and the creation of the universe. Astrophysics is a complex subject. Even years of study barely scratches at the understanding of the universe. Chapter 1 will leave your head swimming with particles, photons, quarks, leptons, and antimatter. It starts to make some sense with Sir Isaac Newton in Chapter 2 with the falling apple and revolving planets. There are some interesting facts about the naming of planets, the moons, and elements in Periodic Table. The book is probably more engaging for those who are fond of astrophysics and science. It contains a lot of complex concepts to absorb.

From The Department Of Exotic Happenings...! Review by Gillian
Yes! We are all stardust!
Only the truly knowledgeable might not like "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry." I'm sure they're into much more in-depth works. But for those of us who dream up into the sky, it's a pure delight. Heck, even the knowledgeable might like it as Neil deGrasse Tyson is the best narrator out there, one of the best writers there is. Period.
Filled with wonderful ideas, galaxies devouring dwarf galaxies (ooh, bad karma!), massive radio telescopes, a fun run through the periodic table of elements, comets, a study of time, so much is packed into just over 3 1/2 hours. Yes, you do come out wanting more, more info, more ideas.
More deGrasse Tyson! Only he can make the strange ominous on one hand, fantastically enthralling on the other. Only he can make comparisons that are laugh out loud funny on the one hand, complete and utter poetry on the other. Worth the price, worth the woefully short time, you'll be engaged and smiling the whole way through all these well-written essays that'll have you looking up at the sky again, fascinated, laughing in your heart and soul. Maybe you'll lose sight of the vast, vast, oh so vast picture, but you'll be delighted by the many small and provocative wonders you're left with.

Good book, until the political dig. Review by elliott_98026
The line between scientific fact and political opinion gets trampled right over. I would have given him a pass, if he had delineated between them. But he didn't, so I don't. Otherwise a good listen.
