Eicher, Astronomy Lovely book. Last chapter worthy of Carl Sagan himself. -Richard Dawkins Tyson breaks these big ideas into digestible lessons with the humor and charisma he's known and loved for. - Popular Mechanics Tyson's insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist, or educator. - Forbes A great gift for the scientifically inclined (but busy). - Chicago Tribune Vintage Tyson--engaging, chatty, and littered with historical and linguistic anecdotes. - Times Higher Education
