If you're interested in learning more about the mysteries of the cosmos and enjoy a great laugh while doing so then this audio book is for you! A thoroughly absorbing and thought provoking listen told in Mr Tyson's extremely clever and unique style. Masterfully narrated by the wonderful Dion Graham.
This was a fantastic educational book about the universe. The narrator is great and expressive, and the author's writing makes the book very easy to understand. He uses great analogies and can even be humorous at times. Great book for someone who is interested in learning about the universe in layman's terms!
Outstanding! Makes you rethink.a lot of things. and I hold a n PhD in the sciences. I really appreciated the section where the author revi=wed the scientific accomplishments of earlier civilizations.espesially the Moors.
Great collection of essays of Neil Tysons, but if you listened to a lot of his Star Talk episodes then it's just a refresher. Can get a little boring on some parts (mostly on stuff of mathematical eqyations) but great listen and I would recommend it to the scientific literate or if you're just wanting to dab a little in the universe.
This is a collection of essays, not one continuous story. That said, the performance was great and the content is awesome. This "book" gives you a glance at Neil before he was the pop culture icon he is today.
Simple and fun writing and narration. If you have taken Astronomy, then this is largely a refresher... but will still hold your attention with new and topics and ideas!
Faced with mindless duty, when an audio book player slips into a rear pocket and mini buds pop into ears, old is made new again.
“Death by Black Hole” is an exploration of the universe; i.e. how it was formed, where life comes from, whether life exists on other planets or in other universes, how the world might end, what a black hole in space is, and what would happen to the human body entering a black hole. Neil deGrasse Tyson, in writing "Death by Black Hole", asks the public--can you hear me now?
Neil deGrasse Tyson has become a well-known Astrophysicist and translator of the science of cosmology because of NOVA TV presentations, and interviews on Comedy Central's “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report”.
Tyson explores the history of cosmology beginning with scientists like Newton, Galileo, Copernicus, Einstein, Durac, Hubble, and many other names known and unknown by the general public. “Death by Black Hole” is interesting but not revelatory.
I very much enjoy Neil deGrasse Tyson's mind, outlook on the universe, and enjoyd listening to his book. My only disappointment is that someone else read the book. It was very well-read but it wasn't NdeGT.
Great content by Mr Tyson! Narrator was fantastic! Highly recommend. New material Was explained thoroughly.
If you love listening to StarTalk, you should listen to this book. It made me laugh, and it made me think. Good stuff.
