A fascinating book on the joys of discovering how the world works, by the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Cosmos and Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors.
Carl Sagan, writer and scientist, returns from the frontier to tell us about how the world works. In his delightfully down-to-earth style, he explores and explains a mind-boggling future of intelligent robots, extraterrestrial life and its consequences, and other provocative, fascinating quandaries of the future that we want to see today.
“Magnificent…Delightful…A masterpiece. A message of tremendous hope for humanity…While ever conscious that human folly can terminate man’s march unto the future, Sagan nonetheless paints for us a mind-boggling future: intelligent robots, the discovery of extraterrestrial life and its consequences, and above all the challenge and pursuit of the mystery of the universe.” –Chicago Tribune
“Go out and buy this book, because Carl Sagan is not only one of the world’s most respected scientists, he’s a great writer…I can give a book no greater accolade than to say I’m planning on reading it again. And again. And again.” –The Miami Herald
