Astrophysics for People in a Hurry
Neil deGrasse Tyson has a way with words that make this book entertaining and witty as well as informative, awe inspiring, and thought provoking. The information contains everything from quarks and black matter to the insignificance of humanity in a vast universe.
The formulas given at the beginning of the book challenge the brain to try to keep track of it all but it all necessitates the understanding of astrophysics. Historical references that include word origins and the knowledge of the minds of great thinkers also make this book more than just a reference book but a story of our past, present, and future in the universe.
