Publisher's Summary

In the final book of his astonishing career, Carl Sagan brilliantly examines the burning questions of our lives, our world, and the universe around us. These luminous, entertaining essays travel both the vastness of the cosmos and the intimacy of the human mind, posing such fascinating questions as how did the universe originate and how will it end, and how can we meld science and compassion to meet the challenges of the coming century? Here, too, is a rare, private glimpse of Sagan's thoughts about love, death, and God as he struggled with fatal disease. Ever forward-looking and vibrant with the sparkle of his unquenchable curiosity, Billions & Billions is a testament to one of the great scientific minds of our day.

Incredibly moving

Wonderful collection of assorted works by Carl Sagan. The epilogue by Ann Druyan is extremely touching. Would highly recommend for any fans of Carl Sagan or science in general.

Our generation's most pressing issues

Don't be put off by the first couple of chapters. The nature of the book becomes clear as you go along. These are somewhat randomly chosen topics, but their existential relevance ties them together. Sagan is both prescient and, sadly, overly optimistic in his treatment of global warming. He brings nuance - yes, nuance - to the usually thumbs-up, thumbs-down topic of abortion. By the end, you will have thought more deeply and become more informed about humanity and the universe. It is a wonderful encore.
