"'In the gulf between the depths of human curiosity and the limits of human ignorance' is a space to ask questions, write astrophysicist Tyson (StarTalk) and physicist Trefil (Imagined Life) in this breezy survey of physics's curiosities. Lay readers curious about the mysteries of the universe will want to take a look."--Publishers Weekly
"[An] exuberant and enticing resource."--Booklist
"A lively, richly illustrated celebration of scientific inquiry."--Kirkus Reviews
"A well-organized and well-written book . . . Tyson explains the cosmos in an understandable way for those who have had some science interest, exposure or classes but who have not majored in science. He is one of the few scientists that can break it down in an understandable way and keep it very interesting."--@litandlife
"Based on the popular talk show and podcast StarTalk, this collection of essays explores many of the universe's most intriguing mysteries. From dark matter, the Big Bang, and other space oddities to quarks, multiverses, and other quantum curiosities . . . the authors invite readers to contemplate these fascinating questions which scientists have pondered for centuries. As expected from National Geographic publications, the book is beautifully illustrated. Its stunning color photographs enhance the enjoyment of this cosmic reading journey.--Library Journal
"Cosmic Queries is a book that can bring astrophysics into the orbit of even the most novice space explorer. . . . I have never been so at ease reading a science text in my life. The illustrations were so helpful and the format kept me interested throughout the pages. Neil deGrasse Tyson's engaging style is what really brought me into the book and kept me glued to its pages."--@amysbooketlist (5-star review)
"I love Neil deGrasse Tyson. You can just feel his joy in everything space related and his love of sharing his knowledge."--@bookscookslooks
"Tyson and Trefil succinctly lead the reader through almost every aspect of cosmic history while addressing age-old questions with new verve. . . . Despite the book's title, arguably its real value is in just
how efficiently it covers what we currently know about this chunk of spacetime we call home."--Forbes.com
