This is a very entertaining and informative read. Philip Plait gets across the enormity of the astronomical forces that exist in the universe with dry humor and clear explanations. He is a renowned science educator an popularizer. This is a great read!

Fun, entertaining and spectacular way to get introduced to the universe and all the ways things will end. And mind you, considering the title, it's also a strangely comforting book... Reading this is like watching a good old end-of-the-world movie from the 50s.

The author is very good at everyday speak, and can translate even the most challenging physics and astronomy issues to a language that is accessible to everyone.
