Astrophysicist and author Janna Levin discusses her latest book Black Hole Survival Guide, a wholly accessible, fascinating guide to black holes. Perhaps the most intriguing inhabitants of the universe, black holes provide the terrain on which the laws of nature are explored. Levin explains the ways in which black holes have changed our most basic understanding of the galaxy, the universe, the whole expanse of reality that we inhabit.

This book is complemented by more than twenty original paintings by the artist Lia Halloran.
