really liked it

This is probably one of the most accessible of Sagan's books - I read it easily in a few sittings. It goes into topics that one can scarcely wrap their mind around and somehow, at the end of the chapter, you get it. Sagan is more than just a physicist, or an astronomer, he is a philosopher. I imagine doing the work of a physicist and exploring what might be out there in the universe could cause one to often reflect the nature of life and man. Just looking up at a distant star can make my life seem so small and insignificant in the vastness of space and time. This book was full of interesting insights from Sagan's career, this book gives us a window into his august and erudite soul. Very much enjoyed this book.
