Death by Black Hole Reviews


"Characteristically fun and jaunty." -- Sky and Telescope
"Tyson proves that no topic is too big or small for his scrutiny.... [He] tackles an impressive range of subjects... with great humor, humility, and-most important-humanity." -- Wook Kim - Entertainment Weekly
"Dr. Tyson has a grand time dissecting certain forms of foolishness. Get it, plan to savor it" -- Angela Gunn - USAToday.com
"Tyson comes across as having an excellent grasp of the current state of astrophysics, cosmology, chemistry and other scientific disciplines... he conveys knowledge clearly to the nonspecialist, often with ingratiating humor and wit." -- Roy E. Perry - The Tennessean
