My Reccomended Reading

I often get asked about my favorite astrophysics books, so here's a list of my favorites at a variety of levels!

The End of Everything (Astrophyiscally Speaking) Katie Mack

Katie Mack does an incredible job of walking through what could eventually happen to our universe. She explores five different possibilities in depth and it's a great read with only a dash of existential dread!

How I Killed Pluto and Why it Had it Coming Mike Brown

A fun read by the man largely responsible for Pluto's demotion to dwarf planet. This book is the main reason for any Pluto you may come across on my channel, but don't let that be a reason not to read it! It's a great insight into the life of an astrophysicist and fairly light on the technical science.

A Brief History of Time Stephen Hawking

Stephan Hawking's absolute classic. Enough said.

Cosmos Carl Sagan

Another classic. The book that first got me interested in astrophysics. It might be a bit dated now but still highly reccomend.

The Elegant Universe Brian Greene

If you're interested in string theory, theoretical physicist Brian Greene has a great walkthrough in this book. Not saying I necessarily buy into it, but it's a good read!

Lost in Math Sabine Hossenfelder

A slightly more technical but fascinating read about a possible explanation for the grand problems in physics right now: our solutions are mathematically beautiful but not based in scientific evidence. A very unique take for anyone interested in grand unification or string theory.

From Eternity to Here Sean Carroll

A great book tackling a complicated concept: time. Honestly would recommend any Sean Carroll book.

The Six Loren Grush

In a somewhat different vein, this is a story about space exploration. It tells the story of the first six American female astronauts. A very inspiring and informational book, although be prepared to get a little frustrated about misogyny.
