This was the linear astrophysics book I was looking for when I picked up Cosmos originally. Not that Cosmos wasn’t an impressive compilation of galactic history, but I was hoping it would be more straight-forward than it was. Origins didn’t have quite the scope of Cosmos, but it had the direct timeline and definitions-for-physics-dummies I wanted. Tyson and Goldsmith do a fantastic job of making their subject matter accessible, regardless of what your physics background is. They’re clear about what we are certain of and what we’re only speculating on, and when we have no clue whatsoever. I’d happily read anything this duo wrote, and I’m looking forwards to more.
