I am sorry if a similar question has been asked before. I look at other questions but was not entirely satisfied. So, I am a Psychology student who would like to know more about the basics of astrophysics. Could anyone recommend a good book about this. Also, I am particularly interested in black holes, so introductory literature on that is welcome too.
Answers to these sort of questions tend to be opinion-based which is frowned upon, but Neil DeGrasse Tyson's recent book Astrophysics for People in a Hurry has had very positive reviews. Injecting some facts, it has apparently spent a year on the New York Times bestseller lists and has sold over a million copies. It could be a good place to get you started before starting on a e.g. introductory college/university textbook.
