    The best book for aspiring astrophysicists and astronomers. This book contains detailed descriptions of some of the most intrinsic and dark stuff in our universe, penned down with a little bit of humour by our beloved astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Go ahead and buy it now or else you might regret not buying it…..!!

  2. Shreyas S Nadkarni (Verified Purchase)

    Some chapters are great, some not so. The book is extremely concise and small. One can read the whole book in a go. However, my advice would be to read slowly, understanding the concepts and sometimes taking help of internet to further explore the topics, author talked about. The true success of this book is it leaves you wanting more.

  3. Selva Kumar (Verified Purchase)

    No doubt I loved reading the book.. but I found most of the content repetitive as I am an avid follower of Neil de grasse Tyson..and he has written down what he has said many a times in numerous conferences and podcasts.

  4. Robin Singh (Verified Purchase)

    Mr Tyson explains almost everything in very simple terms. …Ever wondered why the earth the moon and other planets are round or shaped like a ball ? It’s in there!
