Praise

“[Sagan’s] writing brims with optimism, clarity and compassion.”Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“Sagan used the spotlight of his fame to illuminate the abyss into which stupidity, greed, and the lust for power may yet dump us. All of those interests and causes are handsomely represented in Billions & Billions.”The Washington Post Book World 

“Astronomer Carl Sagan didn’t live to see the millennium, but he probably has done more than any other popular scientist to prepare us for its arrival.”Atlanta Journal & Constitution

Billions & Billions can be interpreted as the Silent Spring for the current generation. . . . Human history includes a number of leaders with great minds who gave us theories about our universe and origins that ran contrary to religious dogma. Galileo determined that the Earth revolved around the Sun, not the other way around. Darwin challenged Creationism with his Evolution of Species. And now, Sagan has given the world its latest challenge: Billions & Billions.”San Antonio Express-News 

“[Sagan’s] inspiration and boundless curiosity live on in the gift of his work.”Seattle Times & Post-Intelligencer

“Couldn’t stay awake in your high school science classes? This book can help fill in the holes. Acclaimed scientist Carl Sagan combines his logic and knowledge with wit and humor to make a potentially dry subject enjoyable to read.”The Dallas Morning News

Author Essay

Carl Sagan is a treasure! He makes us think….even if it hurts!!! What’s so striking about Billions & Billions is that this is his last work and there is an emotional aspect to his writing.
