Nonetheless, I enjoyed what I read. Neil DeGrasse Tyson has a great way of speaking of cosmology and astronomy in a way that is easily digestible. Topics that traditionally would overwhelm the average reader are made clear and understandable throughout the book, making this a great beginner to intermediate read for anyone interested in the discussed topics.
I did find a few grammatical errors, and the book does jump around a lot in a way that sometimes feels abrasive. But overall, it's a solid book.
...A big part of this is providing (often ingenious) examples for every point that the 'average layman' might need in order to make the text crystal clear and interesting to read.
Neil Tyson's "Origins" - just like most of Carl Sagan's books - I devoured as fast as I could. It gave me but another viewpoint of an obviously gifted astrophysicist and writer's view of the evolution of the cosmos.
