This series had a profound effect on me as a teenager and is staggering in the breadth of scientific, historical and cultural themes it pursues. Sagan was truly one of the great scientific thinkers of the last century and in time will be viewed alongside many of the Ancient Greek mathematicians or European Renaissance astronomers that he introduced to me through this series.
