    3. Two excellent science writers collaborated on this book. The title describes the overall theme quite well; the origin of the universe, galaxies, stars, elements, solar systems, planets, and life. The last chapter discusses the search for extra-terrestrial life.Some of the chapters are imbued with a fun sense of humor--while others are lacking in humor, though still well-written. I wonder if the reason is that and each author tackled entire chapters, so each chapter represents the style of its au [...]

    4. Almost all of my stars on this one is for the ease for which Tyson explains the cosmos, the clarity, and the breadth of astrophysics itself.The one star that's missing is just because it's all stuff I've read before. :) In other words, it's great if you're looking for an introductory and nearly math-less course on everything from the Big Bang to the formation of the planets to the building blocks and observed results of our search for extra-terrestrial life.That's it. It's a great refresher, too [...]

    5. I wish that I could rate this book higher. I really like Neil deGrasse Tyson, and I really like this subject, but this book was not great for me. Maybe it was the fact that I did the audio rather than reading it with my own eyeballs, but it just didn't work for me. I found the technicality off-putting. It was hard for me to focus on this book when there are just random facts and figures being thrown at my ears. I've read quite a few science books this year, and they were all interesting and ente [...]

    6. كتاب متميز لم يخيب ظني فيه وهو مليء بالمعلومات الشيقة والمثيرة والمفاجئة حتى لمن لهم اطلاع دائم على جديد الفلك والفيزياء من أمثاليأول مرة أسمع عن عنصر التكنيشيوم الذي يتكون على أسطح العمالقة الحمراء والذي قد تصل فترة عمر النصف الخاصة به إلى قرابة المليون عاماً.كنت أظن أن ال [...]

    8. Me when I finished the book---Part 1: Origin of the universeIf you ever saw our earth -the complete photo- or the the Milky Way and wonderd how it became like this? why it look like this? HOW we reached this point? THEN this book will answer you, it may not answer you fully since there are questions until now scientist couldn't answer."knowing where you came from is no less important than knowing where you are going"---Part 2,3,4: The origin of the GalaxiesStarsPlanets---The final parts: Life on [...]

    9. كتاب جيد لكن بالنسبة لي قرأت نظريات استيفن هونكز باللغة الانحليزية ورأيت انه اكثر وضوحا من هذا الكتاب غير ان معظم محتويات هذا الكتاب مأخوذة من نظريات العالم استيفن هوكنز، لذلك انصح بمن تهمه هكذا نوع من القظايا ان يقرأ لهذا العالماعلاه هو الريڤيو عند قرائتي له اول مرة واعطيت [...]

    10. “However, every advance in our knowledge of the cosmos has revealed that we live on a cosmic speck of dust, orbiting a mediocre star in the far suburbs of a common sort of galaxy, among a hundred billion galaxies in the universe. The news of our cosmic unimportance triggers impressive defense mechanisms in the human psyche.”A short personal note: Forget hot actors and actresses, singers, models. If I had the chance to meet a famous person I'd totally go for Neil deGrasse Tyson. Or Michio Kak [...]

    11. 'Origins' is the best explanatory introduction to the formation and evolution of the Cosmos I have read! Co-author Neil deGrasse Tyson is an astrophysicist and co-author Donald Goldsmith is an astronomy writer, and in my opinion, they make a good team. The book is the most coherently arranged science book on this subject I have ever tried.It has five parts:Part I: The Origin of the UniversePart II: The Origin of Galaxies and Cosmic StructurePart III: The Origin of StarsPart IV: The Origin of Pla [...]

    12. DeGrasse Tyson and Goldsmith give us a wide ranging look at the beginning of everything: The universe, galaxies, stars, planets, even life itself. They discuss a myriad of topics such as: The Big Bang and cosmic inflation; how the elements are made; the structure and composition of the universe; the likelihood of alien life. With this extensive scope in a relatively short book nothing is covered in depth. For the science enthusiast who has read similar books there isn’t much new. Still I enjoy [...]

    15. When a book with the title Origins: 14 Billion Yeas of Cosmic Evolution, starts with an opening line “In the beginning, there was physics”, and is written by NDT the man himself, you cant go wrong with it. An extraordinary story needs an extraordinary story-teller, and NDT is no ordinary human - does an exceptional job translating the modern understanding of astrophysics to normal language. Its the ultimate origins story told - from origin of the universe at the moment of creation (10^-43 se [...]

    17. I'm not actually finishing this book. I refuse. The way it's written is so off-putting. It's redundant and smarmy. The authors explained the "photon fog" condition of the early universe fully three times on one page and then again in the next chapter. They also managed to take shots at religion, sci-fi, and non-scientists all within the first 50 pages. And the info that they're writing about isn't even that ground-breaking; they appear to be covering theories that have been around for at least t [...]

    18. ترجمة ممتازة وسلسة لكتاب أكثر من رائع انصح به لمحبي كتب كارل ساجان

    19. In a book that is supposed to be about origins, Tyson gets on the bus at the first stop rather than at the beginning. He says that in the beginning there was physics. Okay. Where did the laws and constants found in physics come from? What a cop out!

    20. الحقيقة أن الكتاب شيق لكن صعب التخيل خاصة إذا قرأ إنسان غير متخصص في الفيزياء وكنت أتمني أن اُشاهد فيلماً تسجيليا يشرح بالصور وبالفيديوهات التخيليةكيفية تمدد الكون في أجزاء من أجزاء من الثانية بعد الإنفجار وشكل الكتلةالمضادةوالمادة السوداء التي تملأالكون والسؤال الذي دفع [...]

    21. Origins was a surprisingly easy and enjoyable read. I think that Neil deGrasse Tyson and Donald Goldsmith chose an excellent theme in deciding to write this book through the lens of beginnings. This focus allowed them to cover the basics of everything from the origins of the universe to the beginning of life on earth and beyond in a concise and coherent narrative that expertly shifts the reader's focus between the everyday sensory world, the unimaginably large scale of the galaxies, and the infi [...]

    22. Full review: wp/p7a9pe-4VNeil deGrasse Tyson is one of my favorite smart people in the whole world. He has written numerous books on astrophysics and science in general, narrated the incredible science documentary TV show "Cosmos," leads the "StarTalk Radio" podcast, and does a million other things that help and enrich our world.

    23. In the beginning, something something something happened. Here is something that sort of resembles math describing it. Here are some Greek letters, you remember those, right? Here is a confusing analogy for it. And finally, here is an attempt at a joke that makes you cringe.That's how I'm afraid I will remember "Origins", which I think is a shame. I like NDT, I enjoyed the PBS Nova special, and I've always been fascinated by astronomy, physics, and cosmology. The book, however, is a bit of a dis [...]

    24. ذكرني بكتاب قصة الكون لجون جريبين لكن أظنه أسهل بكثييير. الكتاب رحلة قصيرة للتعرف على بداية كل شيء وأصل الأشياء، ممتع حقيقةً💜

    25. Despite the complexity of the subject matter, this book was very understandable. That is one of the strengths of Neil DeGrasse Tyson's writing (and that of his writing partner in this project, Donald Goldsmith). That being said, much of the material covered in the book was still beyond my comprehension. However, since I am very interested in the "stuff" out there in the cosmos, I really enjoyed this book.As the title implies, the book covers topics from the very beginning of the universe to now [...]

    26. This was a great book to contrast Brian Greene's The Elegant Universe. At face value, one would assume that both books are similar because they a) deal with physics and b) cover the universe; but it's not that simple. If there's one thing I've learned from these scientific exposés it's this (best said by Tyson himself!):"You must also find a way to reconcile two currently incompatible branches of physics: quantum mechanics (the science of the small) and general relativity (the science of the la [...]

    27. البدايات ،، وما زلتُ أقف وقفة إجلال و حيرة و "دوخان عقلي" في كل هذه العلوم وكيف استطاع الإنسان أن يسبر غور العلوم ليصل للبدايات،، وأكثر من البدايات.للأمانة العلمية هنالك فصول أو صفحات لم أفقه منها شيئاً رغم اعادة قرائتها مراراً "أنا برضو مش عالمية وعقلي ع قدي :3 " وهنالك فصول وص [...]

    28. This is a wonderful tour through basic astronomy into the newer, more unknown aspects of the final frontier. Those who know Mr. Tyson and his efforts to promote "science literacy" might not particularly fancy this. Alternatively, some may already know this information due to textbooks or being in school for the subjects.I'm one of those people who's in school for something completely unrelated to science and astronomy. While that may be the case, it did its job in informing me of things that may [...]

    29. So, this is the book that got me obsessed with the possibility of life in our own solar system, being Jupiters moons - and most importantly, Europa. It goes into detail about how the moons of Jupiter have a liquid, salty ocean that have all the ingredients for life, we just need to get there! This is a GREAT book about the history of everything. I would put it on par and along the same lines of Short History of Nearly Everything, and A Brief History of Time. All of these are great books, but I'd [...]

    30. My family members started telling me that I sound like an astrophysicist!Not really, actually :PI did nothing than reading this Wonderful thing, its better to embrace the hard truth than reassuring fables. Have to look at the book, crave some cosmic purpose, find yourself a worthy goal!
