User reviews about the book
By A Must-Read
I bought this on a whim, and I am so glad I did! The science is incredibly accessible and enjoyable -- the author utilizes great analogies and common language without condescending to non-scientifically astute readers. He creates an astounding picture of the power, the enormity, and the connection between every aspect of the fabric of space-time fro earth through the solar system, the universe, and beyond. Part science, part philosophy, an amazing read I highly recommend for everyone! This will be my Gift Book this year for my family and friends!
Overrated pop science spewed. A poor man’s Carl Sagan.
Found Myself Surprisingly More & More Interested As I Read On.
Journey to the stars
Neil embodies and represents the true scientist. His writing takes you on a quick, yet extravagant and beautiful journey through the vast Universe. From the smallest, to the vastly gigantic and dangerous phenomena that have transform and created what we see before us, today. Neil is the man. I was hooked!
Very easy to read with quick short anecdotes where even the least person into astrophysics will be able to understand. This book still sits on my coffee table and I pick it up now and then to re-read some of the chapters.
People in a hurry
If I were to read my first book on this subject, this would be the perfect primer. The author gives relatable analogies for the complex workings of the universe(s). If this was my first book it would leave me with wanting to to know more. If that was the author intent which I believe it was, then mission accomplished.
The first book I have ever thrown in the garbage.
By Yes!! Most amazing game ever!
His disdain for people who believe in a god is palpable throughout every chapter. Not even an original work, just a rehash of other's theories, peppered with his own self congratulatory prose.
Neil is talented in telling astrophysics to anyone whether a novice to physics or expert.
It was amazing
