The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

Love, love, love this book. Sagan encourages skeptical thinking as a way to avoid bullshit and the manipulative hold of charlatans. I wish this was required reading in our schools and churches, truly would protect a lot of people.

Pale Blue Dot

Sobering reflection on how inconsequential we are, populating just one tiny planet in the vast cosmos. But hey, reality check! He then paints a humanistic future, love Carl.
