Summary

Neil deGrasse Tyson's number-one New York Times best-selling guide to the cosmos, adapted for young listeners.

From the basics of physics to big questions about the nature of space and time, celebrated astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson breaks down the mysteries of the cosmos into bite-sized pieces. Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry describes the fundamental rules and unknowns of our universe clearly - and with Tyson's characteristic wit, there's a lot of fun thrown in, too.

This adaptation by Gregory Mone includes extra explanations to make even the trickiest concepts accessible. Building on the wonder inspired by outer space, Astrophysics for Young People in a Hurry introduces an exciting field and the principles of scientific inquiry to young listeners.

Fantastic and educational

Narrator, a voice you trust, educates, and entertains. An author who is so clever with his words, you forget you are hearing an educational book. This book is a win for parents and a win for young folks.
