Carl Sagan's final book, finished up shortly before his untimely death in 1997. Because of that some of the science presented in the book has been surpassed in the last 20 years. But most of his conclusions, and fears, have continued along much the same paths as he discussed in the book, global warming, pollution and uncontrolled population growth.

As with most books of this type I was totally engrossed by the hard science topics and less so by most of the 'soft science' discussion. Still, overall I enjoyed reading this and will defiantly read any other books by Dr Sagan that I come across. (I have read several, but there are still a few that I have skipped.)
