Author and narrator Neil deGrasse Tyson shines brightly as he declaims his "Cosmic Perspectives on Civilization" in 10 interconnected essays. Taking his title from Galileo's "Siderius Nuncius," Tyson looks at planet Earth and its inhabitants using a "space-down" perspective--that of both an inhabitant of Earth and a visitor from another solar system. Using examples from astrophysics, astronomy, and the cosmos, Tyson calmly explains the need for unity and respect through topics ranging from exploring the solar system to landing on the moon, from war and politics to race and gender. Like a spaceship traveling the stars, Tyson's voice flows smoothly as he delivers complex topics and positive perspectives on the future. M.B.K.
