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!
Maybe, I missed the point of this book, but it seemed to be more a philosophical discussion with a healthy dose of wonder tossed in for flavor.
If you were expecting learn something, don't. This book is more suited for a tabloid TV show than a learning experience.
I was looking for something exciting and insightful, but was left feeling flat.
If time travel becomes a reality, I want the time I spent with this book back.
I love NDT's in-your-face, it-is-what-it-is style of writing. Excellent source of knowledge, fun facts, and humour.
The narrator is wonderful, also; but for one oopsie: he called the Saturn V (five) rocket the Saturn V (like Victor) rocket. Cringe-worthy, but hasn't prevented me from listening over and over (and over) again!
Tyson has a very wonderful mind and a very good wit. The performance by Graham was just as good as if Tyson were performing this himself. At times I forgot that it was not Tyson speaking.
