Summary

At age nine, before he could even pronounce the word astrophysicist, Neil de Grasse Tyson knew that's what he wanted to be. An urban stargazer who glimpsed the heavens from apartment roofs, Tyson embarked on a lifelong love affair with the night sky that propelled him to a meteoric career. The Sky Is Not the Limit recounts his compelling personal story, including his rise to the ranks as director of his beloved Hayden Planetarium -- the only African American to ever be awarded the post.

With the spirited eloquence that has made him one of America's best-known scientists, Tyson captures both the awesome wonders of the heavens and the adventures of life as a modern astrophysicist. Fighting the conventional wisdom of his adolescence (he was urged to pursue sports instead of science), he went on to become an extraordinary academic success and a charismatic media magnet called on to explain recent breakthroughs, such as the discovery of water on Mars.

Evoking the grandeur of the cosmos on nearly every page, The Sky Is Not the Limit irresistibly evokes a childhood dream realized, against a backdrop of stars.
