Viewers of FOX’s Cosmos have recognized Neil deGrasse Tyson’s talent for guiding them through the mysteries of outer space with clarity and enthusiasm. Bringing together more than forty of Tyson’s favorite essays, Death by Black Hole explores a myriad of cosmic topics, from the movie industry’s feeble efforts to get its night skies right to what it would be like to be inside a black hole. America’s best-known astrophysicists, Tyson is a natural teacher who simplifies the complexities of astrophysics while sharing his infectious fascination for our universe.
“[Tyson] tackles a great range of subjects…with great humor, humility, and―most important―humanity.”
“It’s more imperative than ever that we find writers who can explain not only what we’re discovering, but how we’re discovering it. Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of those writers.”
— Anthony Doerr, Boston Sunday Globe
