Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson proves again that science can be fun and edifying via this big book bursting with color photographs and sidebars. The chapter headings take the form of questions like, "Can We Use Wormholes to Travel?"

Readable format with many photos, too bad it has an entire chapter about how there is no God and religious folks are idiots.
