    DescriptionReaders of "Natural History" magazine recognise Neil deGrasse Tyson's talent for guiding them through the mysteries of the cosmos with clarity and enthusiasm. Here, Tyson compiles his best essays across a myriad of topics. The title essay introduces readers to the physics of black holes, "Holy Wars" examines the needless friction between science and religion in the context of historical conflicts and "Hollywood Nights" assails the movie industry's feeble efforts to get its night skies right.

    Review quote
    "In this highly enjoyable collection of essays, the ever charismatic astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson offers us a peek at the scientific mind in action..." New Scientist "...worthwhile for its sense of adventure and for showing just what science-imagination constrained by evidence-can tell us." Martin Ince, The Times Higher Education Supplement "...the excitement glows from every page." New Scientist"
