The paperback edition of Death from the Skies! comes out today!

You can probably find it at your friendly neighborhood book store (though, not so surprisingly, not in airports) as well as on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other fine online retailers. Read the book about which Neil Tyson said, "[It] scares the reader witless with one cosmic doomsday scenario after the next, right on through the death of the Universe itself. But it's not all bad. You're smiling throughout as he displays his special blend of expertise and wit." My Close Personal Friend Adam Savage™ liked it too: "Phil Plait has done it again. He brings his unique and funny voice of reason and sanity to bear on making sense of a deadly universe." Noted author Phil Plait said, "This is the greatest book in the history of humanity, and may very well save your life." (It's true; I was there when he said it). So why are you still reading this blog entry when you can be buying a copy to read, and one each for all your friends, family, neighbors, and random people you meet on the street? Huh? HUH?
