Author Essay

Carl Sagan’s reputation is truly awesome (in the old sense of the word), and his writing is terrific. He won the Pulitzer prize; he hosted the Peabody & Emmy award-winning series Cosmos; and the book of the same title is the best-selling science book every published in the English language. His wife, Ann Druyan, collaborated with him on many projects.

Mr. Sagan made an immediate connection with a lot of people — his books are written in such accessible language and with so much wit and intelligence that they have changed not only the way we look at science but also the way we look at life.

This book especially touched many people’s lives — mine included.
