    Neil deGrasse Tyson A BiographyBy Michael WhitNarrateed by Dean EbyThis is an audbile book I reuested and the review is voluntaryI have always been fascinated with science and my fascination has been passed down to my kids partly due to me and partly to Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson These two men has had a big impact on children and teens and their knowledge and interest in science This book was wonderful in how it went behind the science of this man to see who he really is surprise he is a lot like us but with degrees and honors It tells about his childhood his likes dreams high school being a star wrestler and that didn't seem to end His college choices and why his many other choices he made and what drove him to make those He is not only smart but strong How he got the blame for killing Pluto but he says he only drove the get a way car LOL It was a great short book but packed with information about this interesting and intriguing individual who already in his short life has made so much history The narrator was wonderful Easy to understand clear and crisp and really put in the enthusiasm I would expect All around a wonderful book

    I am voluntarily reviewing the audiobookThis is super informative listen and a very short listen Everyone knows Neil deGrasse Tyson as this crazy smart and knowledge guy however most people do not realize that he has a sense of humor They also do not realize that he was a ballroom dancer I can say that I did not know that as well This delves into the life of Neil and I enjoyed it It did not feel as though it was 33 mins long I learned a lot and I want to know The narrator Dean Eby was very good He did not go to fast nor did he make this audiobook sound as though it was a lecture I would totally listen to another book narrated by Dean Eby

    Neil Degrasse Tyson A Biography was a uite short biography and although direct and easy to understand had a sort of an unprofessional uality to its writing style The book went through the entirety of Neil Degrasse Tyson's life to within a few years of present day since Tyson is still alive It described his life in adeuate detail though a considerably short book I used the audio book due to ease of access it gave Tyson the respect he deserves However the writing style was for the most part weak and simple even to the point of seeming like a biography a high school er would write for a project but a bit extensive Yet the writing style still being lackluster did not detract from the information it presented which was why I gave it four stars out of five In summary the book could have been better but for a succinct biography it portrayed Tyson's life to a moderate level of depth and to a deep measure of accuracy
