Publisher Comments:

"FASCINATING . . . MEMORABLE . . . REVEALING . . . PERHAPS THE BEST OF CARL SAGAN'S BOOKS."

--The Washington Post Book World (front page review)

In Cosmos, the late astronomer Carl Sagan cast his gaze over the magnificent mystery of the Universe and made it accessible to millions of people around the world. Now in this stunning sequel, Carl Sagan completes his revolutionary journey through space and time.

Future generations will look back on our epoch as the time when the human race finally broke into a radically new frontier--space. In Pale Blue Dot Sagan traces the spellbinding history of our launch into the cosmos and assesses the future that looms before us as we move out into our own solar system and on to distant galaxies beyond. The exploration and eventual settlement of other worlds is neither a fantasy nor luxury, insists Sagan, but rather a necessary condition for the survival of the human race.

"TAKES READERS FAR BEYOND Cosmos . . . Sagan sees humanity's future in the stars."

--Chicago Tribune

Desenova, January 21, 2008 (view all comments by Desenova)
I first came across this book through something that was as far away from a book store or library as possible: YouTube. I found a short clip of homemade videos using audio from the cd version of this book and was just amazed at not only the language, but the emotional poetry that flowed from letter to letter. It dummied my ego, freed my spirit, and increased my awareness to a higher consciousness.

The book is more than a book, but a tool to put you in your place in this existance as we literally travel and infinite speed through infinite space for infinite time.

Highly recommended for everyone, especially those who worry about tomorrow.
