RETURNING TO TELEVISION AS AN ALL-NEW MINISERIES ON FOX   Cosmos is one of the bestselling science books of all time. In clear-eyed prose, Sagan reveals a jewel-like blue world inhabited by a life form that is just beginning to discover its own identity and to venture into the vast ocean of space. Cosmos retraces the fourteen billion years of cosmic evolution that have transformed matter into consciousness, exploring such topics as the origin of life, the human brain, Egyptian hieroglyphics, spacecraft missions, the death of the Sun, the evolution of galaxies, and the forces and individuals who helped to shape modern science.   Praise for Cosmos   “Magnificent . . . With a lyrical literary style, and a range that touches almost all aspects of human knowledge, Cosmos often seems too good to be true.”—The Plain Dealer   “Sagan is an astronomer with one eye on the stars, another on history, and a third—his mind’s—on the human condition.”—Newsday   “Brilliant in its scope and provocative in its suggestions . . . shimmers with a sense of wonder.”—The Miami Herald   “Sagan dazzles the mind with the miracle of our survival, framed by the stately galaxies of space.”—Cosmopolitan   “Enticing . . . iridescent . . . imaginatively illustrated.”—The New York Times Book ReviewNOTE: This edition does not include images.

Read this back when it came out. I remember watching the TV show. It was good. I remember one episode when he wondered what would happen when Voyager left the solar system. Then the 1st Star Trek movie came out & said an alien civilization would build a giant complex & send it back to earth. Great t...

4.0 Cosmos and Dithering Over Book Donating
At the moment the stacks of my books that I'm going to donate to our nearby library cover our small loveseat, and a chunk of those are definitely going away. But the problem is that I get all mushy over books. And since these are the heaviest and most expensive parts of any move, it'd be better if I...

3.0 Cosmos
This is a book about the history and basic concepts of science--and above all about wonder and the “exploration” of the “cosmic perspective.” We get a guided tour through the solar system and beyond. The back of the book boasts this is “one of the best-selling science books in the English language” ...
