I loved this book. Could not put it down and read it in two days and felt sad when it ended. This is witty book about things in the universe that are out to kill us. This includes asteroids and comets that can slam into earth releasing as much energy as million megaton atomic explosions, or coronal mass ejections from the sun that can deplete ozone and bathe us in UV to more exotic and bizarre stuff such as gamma ray bursts somewhere much farther away to eventual "heat" death of the universe. Most of the things are highly unlikely but extremely fun to think about.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who loves astronomy and likes reading about in a lucid and witty prose.
