From the Publisher:

What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There’s no better guide through these mindexpanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson.

But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in digestible chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.

While waiting for your morning coffee to brew, or while waiting for the bus, the train, or the plane to arrive, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will reveal just what you need to be fluent and ready for the next cosmic headlines: from the Big Bang to black holes, from quarks to quantum mechanics, and from the search for planets to the search for life in the universe.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is the director of the world-famous Hayden Planetarium, an astrophysicist with the American Museum of Natural History, and host of the hit radio and Emmy-nominated television show StarTalk. He has received NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal, nineteen honorary doctorates, and has been named People magazine’s Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive. He lives in New York.
