"Characteristically fun and jaunty." "Tyson proves that no topic is too big or small for his scrutiny... [He] tackles an impressive range of subjects... with great humor, humility, and-most important-humanity." -- Wook Kim "Dr. Tyson has a grand time dissecting certain forms of foolishness. Get it, plan to savor it" -- Angela Gunn "Tyson comes across as having an excellent grasp of the current state of astrophysics, cosmology, chemistry and other scientific disciplines... he conveys knowledge clearly to the nonspecialist, often with ingratiating humor and wit." -- Roy E. PerryReview:
"In this highly enjoyable collection of essays, the ever charismatic astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson offers us a peek at the scientific mind in action..." New Scientist "...worthwhile for its sense of adventure and for showing just what science-imagination constrained by evidence-can tell us." Martin Ince, The Times Higher Education Supplement "...the excitement glows from every page." New Scientist"
