Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson 208 pages

I was asked to read Tyson’s most recent book to see if someone like me, who had never taken a physics class, could easily understand what he was explaining.  The simple answer is no;  the more complex answer is usually.  I love Tyson’s subtle sense of humor.  I found fascinating his discussions on planets, galaxies and stars.  I enjoyed reading about telescopes, scientific discoveries and gravity.  But for me, a nonphysics individual, I am still on shaky ground when it comes to topics such as, the speed of light, matter and energy , and protons and electrons.  However, even if you took a high school or college physics class decades ago, I think you will enjoy and appreciate Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.
