Basically a collection of editorials by an astrophysicist woven into a relatively coherent book. Tyson presents mind blowing astronomical facts including star birth, the complexity of gravity and the possibile means of space travel.
This book was ok. Some of the writing was beautiful. The descriptions of Wales were especially lovely and gave a real sense of place. Still, the story did not move me as much as I wanted. After a wonderful start, I felt the story really lagged. The introductions to the places and characters were great. The story is what fell flat for me. A small slice of ok pie-I enjoyed it, but was it worth the calories? I'm not sure.
Not really my taste, but wonderfully written and well illustrated. The author is very talented.
