A great book if you're interested astrophysics.

I am a huge fan of Neil Degrasse Tyson and his work in astrophysics, and his work in helping to convey science in a very fun and exciting way.
This book in all honesty will help you think about the universe in ways you never expected my whole thinking about the universe is definitely broader after reading this book.
