Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

Recommendation inspired by:
What is phantom traffic and why is it ruining your life? - Benjamin Seibold

Why we love this book:

I grew up in planetariums and natural history museums and thought I had a pretty thorough grasp of all things astronomy related. Boy was I wrong! Neil deGrasse Tyson lives up to his reputation as a master communicator, making crystal clear everything from the big bang to why nature loves circles and spheres. Each chapter is super short, funny, and accessible no matter how much you already know about space.
