Mycket bra bok, en 4:a då jag som ville ha en översiktlig bild av vår galax och universum och ibland svårt att bilda en uppfattning utan bilder, fick googla fram allt samt att boken är i mindre format.
Dock förväntade inte mig bilder heller. Men han håller intresset inne och högt och får en grundlig översiktligt bild av vår galax. Tycker den var värd att läsa, kunskap man har med sig. bra för folk som vill ha en fot in i vår mystiska universum.

Recensioner i media
"The style is vintage Tyson - engaging, chatty and littered with historical and linguistic anecdotes..." -- Times Higher Education "Certainly, if anyone can turn the public on to the subject [of astrophysics], it is Neil deGrasse Tyson... In an increasingly insular world, it is a welcome window onto a much bigger picture." -- The Sunday Times "Tyson has told the story of our Universe magnificently in these 12 short chapters... This may have been written for people in a hurry, but I urge you to take your time. It will all be over far too soon." -- BBC Sky at Night "Written in a conversational style, this [Astrophysics for People in a Hurry] provides an accessible and fascinating introduction to a mindbending subject." -- Summer's Hottest Reads 2017 - The Daily Mail "Tyson is an entertaining writer with a startling imagination..." -- BBC Sky at Night "Degrasse Tyson has a talent for making very complicated concepts seem simple, and the amount of content squeezed into one short volume is impressive. He certainly knows his stuff. It takes no time at all to romp through a chapter as the book is written with humour and his descriptions verge on the poetic." -- Chemistry World "... this introductory guide to the mysteries of the cosmos is genuinely accessible." -- Summer Reading 2017 - The Sunday Times "... [Astrophysics for People in a Hurry] is not quite astrophysics for dummies; while it is simplified, it is not simple. It is more a collection of the best and most thrilling moments; astrophysics' greatest hits." -- The Guardian "At just over 200 pages, the book doesn't have all that much space to cover such an intensely complex topic, but DeGrasse Tyson manages it with aplomb. In fact, this collection of essays... toes the line between entertainment and interest brilliantly, never getting too bogged down in fine detail." -- How It Works "Tyson is... the world's best science communicator." -- Times Literary Supplement "All in all, this is a book I can heartily recommend to anyone, regardless of how much or how little they know about physics." -- Popular Science "Finished @NeilTyson's mellifluous reading of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Lovely book. Last chapter worthy of Carl Sagan himself. " -- Richard Dawkins "In Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, he [Neil deGrasse Tyson] shares his awe, encapsulating everything known about the universe in 12 brief chapters, and giving a memorable spin to standard facts." -- New Scientist "This book topped the nonfiction charts in America: not only a measure of Tyson's standing as the popular face of space science in the US but also testimony to an admirably digestible introduction to a Big Subject." -- Books of the Year 2017: Science - The Times "... he [deGrasse Tyson] somehow reveals a path through complex thought and theory in astrophysics for the reader, depositing enough detail to ponder upon, imploring us to consider possible answers to these confounding questions for ourselves." -- The 12 Books of Christmas 2017 - Sky at Night "Another good pop science that's similar in tone is Astrophysics For People In A Hurry by long-time Stephen Hawking admirer, Neil Degrasse Tyson. It's a lot of fun to read and potentially even less complicated than An Briefer History Of Time. Still, the two books actually complement one another quite nicely." -- A Brief History of Books by Stephen Hawking and What You Should Read Next - Verdict "... in this thorough book of almost 600 pages (150 of which are extensive notes and bibliography) the authors present an elaborate expose of the myriad of ways astrophysics intertwines with military R&D." -- On Our Bookshelf - Nature
