Humorous and informative. Loved this one: the only ones that call hurricanes acts of god are insurance companies.
... a bit disjointed at times, but overall a good book packed with astronomical explains & historical points of view on our advancement in this area
The reader selected fir this book sounds very similar to the author, both in his tone as well as his diction and style. At times I actually pictured Dr. Tyson reading it. Although much of the material can be heard in his lectures, this is still a new favorite of mine.
Netizen of the digital world. Curious to know the unknown and eager to learn about the less known and enjoying this journey of discovery!
"Awesome narration about the origin, evolution of our universe, the physical laws governing our cosmos"
It is indeed a wonderful presentation! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the book! I thought the title of the book could have been other than " Death by Black Hole " coz what you hear and what is covered is certainly much more than the ominous " Black Hole' :-)
Favorite Genres: Urban/Preternatural Fantasy, Science Fiction, Knitting Favorite Story Components: character development, under-dog success stories
I had fun listening to this collection of essays, and I am definitely looking for more works narrated by Mr. Graham as he had an enjoyable voice and diction.
The essays were well written, articulate, in places thought provoking, and drew upon sometimes too common examples. By the same token, the majority of places where I found the examples or metaphors repetitive concerned complex topics.
Everything about this book is awesome.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is so interesting & charismatic. So much information..
Learnt a lot if new & interesting things:-)
Great book definitely something you need to take your time to absorb. I recommend it for anyone that wants to expand their knowledge on the basics of the universe.
Overall very good, with small portions of dry lists of facts that belabor certain points. We get it! The universe is big!
