Qual è la natura dello spazio e del tempo? Che posto occupiamo nell'Universo? Che posto occupa l'Universo dentro di noi? Non c'è guida migliore, per queste domande che aprono la mente, del famoso astrofisico Neil deGrasse Tyson. Oggi pochi tra noi hanno il tempo di contemplare l'Universo. E così Tyson porta il cosmo sulla Terra in maniera concisa e chiara, con il suo brillante acume, in gustosi capitoli da consumare in qualsiasi luogo e in qualsiasi momento della vostra giornata piena di impegni. Mentre aspettate il caffè del mattino, l'autobus, il treno o l'aereo, "Astrofisica per chi va di fretta" vi svelerà tutto ciò che occorre per essere informati e pronti al prossimo titolo ove colonne sull'Universo: dal Big Bang ai buchi neri, dai quark alla meccanica quantistica, dalla ricerca di pianeti alla ricerca di vita nell'Universo.

Ah, yes. Nothing like an astrophysics book for beginners to remind me why I’m not an astrophysicist! Even at the basic level, with Tyson’s clear, funny and accessible writing, I found a lot of these concepts WAY over my head. Nevertheless, it is fascinating stuff. My big takeaway was humility: just Leggi tutto
Imagine you are standing with your face up and your mouth wide open underneath a waterfall of Skittles. At first, a few Skittles get into your mouth and you can taste them. Awesome, you think. I love Skittles. Then, the Skittles become overwhelming, as more and more try to force themselves in, and mi Leggi tutto
We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out—and we have only just begun. Neil deGrasse Tyson, within 224 pages, attempts to cover the entirety space and time. He does a pretty good job. However, this is not Astrophysics for Dummies . There are as
I think it's pretty self explanatory what this book is about so no need to summarize. I have to say though that I'm generally not a fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson, because a lot of times he'll just indulge the actual stupid things other people say. Like the whole "debate" about whether or not we're livi Leggi tutto
Just spend a half a day with this book, time you spend, reading or listening won't be wasted. From the big bang 14 billion years ago, to today.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has the gift of helping non-geniuses get a slight clue on what those geniuses are talking about. Slight. Don't even think you can sit down and read this baby in a night. It is definitely a read-a-chapter/think-for-a-bit kind of book. I read a chapter after each fiction book I was Leggi tutto
I borrowed this book through kindle unlimited. It is an excellent astrophysics book for the layperson. However, it is chock full of scientific information about the universe, electrons, neutrinos, etcetera. A solid 4 stars.
Astrophysics is a complex subject. Even years of study barely scratches at the understanding of the universe. Nevertheless, Neil deGrasse Tyson has an amazing ability to make the cosmos fun and understandable. Filled with wonderful ideas -- galaxies devouring dwarf galaxies, massive radio telescopes Leggi tutto
Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is a very readable account of the creation of the universe and how the universe works, as related by Neil deGrasse Tyson. I had this on my watch list for a long time but didn't pull the trigger until it went on sale for $1.99. Since the first movie I saw in the theat Leggi tutto
