Format: Paperback
I discovered Carl Sagan late in life and this book was my first introduction to his work. This book has now taken its place as one of the best books that I own. It is a collection of essays written by Carl Sagan covering a range of topics including an extremely touching story about the illness from which he died.
Carl Sagan is an excellent writer and I found this book so compelling that I really was unable to put it down. A fantastic introduction to his work.
Highly readable, very enjoyable and thought provoking.

I've been intending to read this for years but of all his books I have avoided this one till now as thought it would make me very sad. Instead I found it a celebration of a life lived with purpose and joy. Informative, thought provoking - simply wonderful!

I have tried many times to locate a copy of this book at a reasonable price.( The local library copy had been borrowed and apparently never rerurned) This copy although second hand was in excellent condition and I would not hesitate to recommend the seller. On many sites it was ££££££.s, this one was pence! The book itself is of the quality you would expect from Carl Sagan. Fascinating reading and presented in a way which anyone can grasp. Great read, would recommend

I've read it, and I thought it was so good I've gave it to my girlfriend!!! I think it was Sagan's last book. He speaks about life, religion, environmental problems, ethics, the cold war, abortion, and much more. I really learned a lot with his arguments... I've almost cried in the two last chapters, because in the first one he speaks about his health condition and in the last one his wife tells us he died... I've read the Portuguese translation of the book...
