Great for science nerds and casual readers alike

Personally, I am a science nerd who always loves learning new things so when I found this book I was super excited to read it. My background is in human sciences so I did not have much knowledge in the way of astrophysics but nonetheless it was a great read. Yes, the book did contain a lot of terms that I had to look up a couple of times before I fully grasped its concept but that is kind of what you should expect with astrophysics. I can see that being a turnoff for some but I really did learn a lot from this book. Also, it is not very long so you don't get burned out with all of the new terms.

Boyfriend loved it

I bought this as gift for my space loving boyfriend. He was very excited to read it. He told me it describes basic astrophysics and he picked up a few new bits of knowledge while confirming stuff he already knows. (And the fact that I got a brand new book for him for less then the cover price is wonderful for me!)
