I absolutely loved this book! It was recommended to me by my Philosophy teach so I was hesitant about reading it at first. Once I started I realized it was very easy to understand and I learned a lot from it. It was extremely informative and well worth buying.
As a physician and wannabe scientist, I enjoyed the book. Carl Sagan eloquently conveys many of my own feelings on the various subject matters. The books focus is on the lack of scientifically supported basic reasoning in our society. It is filled with interesting historical information on many topics- religeous, philosophical, scientific, pseudoscientific, technological... Overall somewhat depressing in the bleak picture in paints of humanity... for humanities future. If only his voice was heard by the ignorant masses.
