I've read a lot of pop-physics books over the years. I had already been exposed to most of what is in this book. Still, it was a fun read! Neil just has an entertaining personality and it shines through in the book as much as it does over audio or on TV.
ContentsJust to give you an idea of what's in this book, some of my favorite topics are:
- Dark Matter
- Dark Energy
- Invisible Light
Neil starts the book at the beginning. THAT beginning. The Big-Bang. He also has a chapter called "On Being Round."
On Being Round
Final ThoughtsI don't want to spoil anything else for you, but let's just say there are some pretty spooky things in this book! One of the latter chapters speaks of things that will leave you awestruck! And this is why we love Neil deGrasse Tyson, isn't it! He can give us the heebie-jeebies and leave us awestruck at the same time!
