An insight into a beautiful mind,
This review is from: Conversations with Carl Sagan (Literary Conversations Series) (Paperback)
Carl Sagan will always be remembered for his magnificent television show, Cosmos, in which the likeable scientist communicated the wonders of the universe with a passion and clarity that made science accessible to all.
However, he was more than the front of a popular science show; he was a man of extraordinary intellect with deep concerns about the future of the human race.
This book is a collection of interviews, ranging from 1973 up until his death in 1996, in which Dr. Sagan shares his hopes and fears for humanity with subjects ranging from destroying ourselves due to our own ignorance to communicating with extra terrestrial civilizations.
There are insights into the man not available in any of the books he authored and his passion for humanity and it's advancement are evident.
Anyone familiar with Sagan's work should buy this book.
