A vibrant collection of essays on the cosmos from the nation\'s
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.
