Sound bite science.

If, like me, you have never caught an episode of StarTalk, have only vaguely heard of Neil deGrasse Tyson, have a math, science, engineering degree or job, can't stand safe, middle class conformist humor in the vein of Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me, then you are also, like me, probably not a member of the the target audience. ( )

An interesting thought provoking coffee table like book that covers a wide range of topics from star stuff to just about everything else. These topics come from Neil deGrasse Tyson's television program which frankly I have never watched but am familiar with him for other appearances in particular his version of Cosmos.

The ideas delved into are intriguing at times and certainly educational. However I found the snippets of information given lacking often and the book jumps around to so many dizzying array of ideas that it is at times hard to follow or grasp what the point is.

Generally though the book does a good job in peaking interest and leading to many adventures into unknowns and what ifs, the graphics are well done, and it is fun. ( )
