The Pluto Files by Neil Degrasse Tyson
The history of Pluto’s rise to, and fall from, planet status, as told by one of the most influential figures in the debate, my favourite astrophysicist, Neil Degrasee Tyson.
This book is incredibly informative, and Tyson’s humour shines throughout it. I won’t blather on about it, but here is a bunch of Tyson’s appearances on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Watch them, and you will understand why you should read this book.
