Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry

by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Reviewed by Sarah

Several years after publishing Astrophysics for  People in a Hurry, Neil deGrasse Tyson has released a teen-friendly edition. This is the perfect book for anyone who wishes to learn the complexities of space at its most basic. Written in a style accessible to even those not-inclined to math and science, the renowned astrophysicist explains the origins of the universe, why spheres are the most important shape in space, and why some of the most important parts of space are the parts we cannot see. This book is a must-read for anyone who has even the smallest inclination to understand the universe.
