I think the best way to describe this book is to reference the last chapter and Neil DeGrasse Tyson's catchphrase on his podcast - the Cosmic Perspective. Even though I already knew a bunch of the info in the book (at least at the basic level), when I really thought about it, it was so hard to wrap my mind around the infinitely large and small quantities referenced by NDT.

A great survey of the state of cosmology at this point in time and a pretty short read. I read it on a five hour car ride and I even took a nap for part of the ride. It's got NDT's trademark humor and ability to explain the cosmos.
