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.
