This was the first book to which I've listened from Carl Sagan and it is amazing! I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Carl Sagan expounds at length on the virtues of skepticism and the scientific method and how it has brought the world out of extreme superstition and greatly elevated the overall status of humanity and implores humanity to maintain a strong dedication to education and learning of science and math in order to better humanity so that we don't fall back into the wretched ways of the past.

If, 1000 years from now, this book is the only surviving record of human existence, I will not be content. I will be dead. However, if I were paradoxically still alive, I would be content.

Excellent audio book of a great book from the much missed Carl Sagan. You must own this book.

Mostly good. A bit dry at times, the narrator does not help this one bit in his monotony. The information is broadly given with a handful of specific mentions of events. There was this really weird bit where it almost felt like Sagan was advocating for not believing women when they've been raped, which not only was very out of place, made me feel supremely uncomfortable.
It's also very America-centric, but I suppose that's to be expected.
