9780393062243: Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries

A vibrant collection of essays on the cosmos from the nation's best-known astrophysicist. “One of today’s best popularizers of science.”―Kirkus Reviews.

Loyal readers of the monthly "Universe" essays in Natural History magazine have long recognized Neil deGrasse Tyson's talent for guiding them through the mysteries of the cosmos with stunning clarity and almost childlike enthusiasm. Here, Tyson compiles his favorite essays across a myriad of cosmic topics. The title essay introduces readers to the physics of black holes by explaining the gory details of what would happen to your body if you fell into one. "Holy Wars" examines the needless friction between science and religion in the context of historical conflicts. "The Search for Life in the Universe" explores astral life from the frontiers of astrobiology. And "Hollywood Nights" assails the movie industry's feeble efforts to get its night skies right.

Known for his ability to blend content, accessibility, and humor, Tyson is a natural teacher who simplifies some of the most complex concepts in astrophysics while simultaneously sharing his infectious excitement about our universe.

About the Author:

Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist with the American Museum of Natural History, director of its world-famous Hayden Planetarium, host of the hit radio and TV show StarTalk, and an award-winning author. He lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

What comes across with immediacy is how much fun Tyson, director of New York Citys Hayden Planetarium, finds in astronomy and how much he wants listeners to enjoy it, too. Narrator Dion Graham captures the astronomers excited, sometimes ironic, tone to perfection. Tysons commentary runs the gamut--from pointing out errors in the science of his favorite sci-fi movies to describing the grisly details of what would happen to a person who fell into a black hole. The production is great for the nonscientist who likes to stay up-to-date with whats going on in astronomy. The combination of a passionate scientist who entertains and a narrator who completely captures the authors style and intent is powerfully enjoyable. D.G.
