Publisher Description

Bringing his cosmic perspective to civilization on Earth, Neil deGrasse Tyson shines new light on the crucial fault lines of our time—war, politics, religion, truth, beauty, gender, and race—in a way that stimulates a deeper sense of unity for us all.

In a time when our political and cultural views feel more polarized than ever, Tyson provides a much-needed antidote to so much of what divides us, while making a passionate case for the twin chariots of enlightenment—a cosmic perspective and the rationality of science.

After thinking deeply about how science sees the world and about Earth as a planet, the human brain has the capacity to reset and recalibrates life’s priorities, shaping the actions we might take in response. No outlook on culture, society, or civilization remains untouched.

With crystalline prose, Starry Messenger walks us through the scientific palette that sees and paints the world differently. From insights on resolving global conflict to reminders of how precious it is to be alive, Tyson reveals, with warmth and eloquence, an array of brilliant and beautiful truths that apply to us all, informed and enlightened by knowledge of our place in the universe.

A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company.

Even more engaging as an audiobook read by NdGT himself

I read the book myself, and saw him on the book tour. Then came across the audiobook. Even better hearing it read by the author himself, who is an amazing story teller. There are some nuggets n the book that didn’t have quite the same impact as the audiobook simply because of the inflections and stresses he places on specific words. This is a book EVERYONE should read and it’s commentary on us as a species we desperately need everyone to hear right now. NdGT reinforces why I fell in love with science and the natural world in the first place and melds it beautifully with my own faith traditions… a seemingly incompatible pairing that actually is a perfect match for a real scientist at heart. Stay curious!

Very disappointing!!!

I am a big fan of Neil, and was hoping for intelligent and intellectual insights, but unfortunately, all of his conversations turn into racial discussions.
