It’s been over a month since my first audiobook of the month post, which means it’s time for the second installment! This time around, I chose an audiobook that I listened to last month and absolutely loved:
Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson
Read by: Neil deGrasse Tyson
3 hours and 41 minutes
I really loved this book! It was short and succinct, but still packed full of interesting facts and a wonderful sense of humor. I have read A Brief History of Time, and while I did think Stephen Hawking does a great job of explaining astrophysics, this book is geared much more toward an audience who is not familiar with physics. I think I retained more information from this book, and I think it was overall a more enjoyable – and just as educational – read.
I also thought that Neil deGrasse Tyson does a great job of narrating this audiobook. I felt like I was really hearing it the way he meant it to be read. And it was almost like sitting through a lecture, which, personally, I loved. Listening to this audiobook was like being in a college class with an incredible professor, and I honestly think that listening to the audiobook made me enjoy this book a lot more than I would otherwise. I still think this would be a great read (and I am planning on picking up a physical copy to have on my shelf), I highly recommend the audiobook!
If you’re interested in this audiobook, you can use this link to sign up for a free trial of Audible, and choose Astrophysics for People in a Hurry as one of your free books! (You get to keep them even if you cancel, so you don’t really have anything to lose.)
I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have a favorite audiobook, share it in the comments – I’m always looking for good audiobook recommendations.
P. S. Check out my post on When to Listen to Audiobooks if you’re not an audiobook person. They’re great for many things, even if, like me, you’re not the kind of person who can listen and work at the same time.
