Welcome to my stop on the Cosmic Queries blog tour sponsored by TLC Book Tours! Thanks to TLC for the invitation!
Several years ago, my family went to the Museum of Natural Sciences in New York City, and we attended a presentation narrated by Whoopi Goldberg and Neil deGrasse Tyson. I can still hear their voices in my head, as I looked at the stars on the ceiling in that mesmerizing room. His passion for the universe knows no bounds, and he shares scientific facts in an entertaining and approachable way.
Because of that, I knew I had to read this book, and it was exactly what expected and more. Smart, scientific, yet completely engaging, Cosmic Queries is astrophysics in consumable form. It’s absolutely fascinating!
This is a Nat Geo book, so of course I have to mention the stunning photography and overall appearance of this book!
I received a gifted copy I will forever treasure.
