Product Details


“This excellent resource celebrates the wonders of space. Sutter’s brisk, often humorous writing and gift for clear explanations make this the perfect choice for readers looking to understand the universe on scales both human and cosmic.”

Publishers Weekly STARRED Review

“Never before has the story of the universe been so accessible. Paul M. Sutter’s Your Place in the Universe brings the cosmos down to earth and shows that you don’t have to be an astrophysicist to enjoy the wonder of it all.”
—Tariq Malik, managing editor,

“Sutter always does a fantastic job of explaining the most complicated concepts and discoveries in an easily understandable way. He’s the perfect guide to help you find your place in the universe.”
—Fraser Cain, publisher of Universe Today

“Imagine sitting around a campfire with an astrophysicist who doesn’t just recount the history of cosmology, but also answers your questions.  He puts them in context, and he is always understandable and never condescending. This is a wonderful read for those who are curious about big ideas—it’s definitely not your daddy’s intro astronomy book.”
—Seth Shostak, senior astronomer, SETI Institute

“What a marvelous book! Sutter delights in hosing down the gory details of our inscrutable, existential place in the universe. Using pithy humor, inspired analogies, and a turbo turn of phrase, he deftly deconstructs the inner workings of everything from dark energy and black holes to stellar evolution and ultimate cosmological fate. His articulate, unorthodox style will have you smiling blithely all the way to the heat death of the universe.”
—Jeff Kanipe, author of The Cosmic Connection: How Astronomical Events Impact Life on Earth
