I loved the other books that Neil deGrasse Tyson has written. I'm so sad not to love this one.

It's a collection of essays, tweets, and interviews from the past couple of years. Unfortunately, it's preaching to the choir. If I'm reading a book about Space Chronicles, I'm probably already pro-science and pro-space. There are times when the book felt a bit brow beating. I kept thinking, I'm so sorry we aren't funding space and education! But I was frustrated and feeling badly about that *before* reading the book.

Still, I'm glad Neil deGrasse Tyson is putting it out there. I hope current and future leaders spend the time to consider what he's saying. I'm impressed by the number of things we owe to the space race.
