"Death By Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandries", Neil deGrasse Tyson

Publisher's description: Bringing together more than forty of Tyson's favorite essays, "Death by Black Hole" explores a myriad of cosmic topics, from what it would be like to be inside a black hole to the movie industry's feeble efforts to get its night skies right.

    What will you be doing on Monday, 4/20, at 11 p.m.? ..... Perhaps watching the premiere of acclaimed astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson’s new show StarTalk. Tyson, who may be best known for hosting the reboot of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series in 2014, will now be appearing weekly on the National Geographic Channel in what may be the first late-night science talk show. Along with a trusty cast of comedians and science-minded folks like Bill Nye, Tyson hopes the adaptation of his popular podcast to a broadcast format will make getting a regular dose of science as pain-free as possible. [Rest deleted]

    This book is written in a very engaging and easy to understand style that's accessible to people with limited science backgrounds. It's a very interesting collection of essays that gives readers a sense of our connection to the greater universe and sparks awe and wonder at what we can know and understand in our vast universe.

    Super bummed that I can't be there on Wednesday. I really enjoyed the book. But, something came up. Hopefully I'll be able to make it in July.
