The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan
The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Pattywinks, August 6, 2012

This book is great. Carl Sagan has this way of just getting right down to the heart of the matter while keeping an open mind. This book hits a little home for me since I am a teacher and Sagan talks about the need for science education (and education in general) to keep up from falling into the abyss. This book is his look at the dangers of discounting science and the scientific method, and the need to be skeptical in general. The man was amazing. He's a legend. A true hero for the modern age.
