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.

Carl Sagan I would call him "God Of Clarity " this book one of the few books that could be read word by word , or maybe letter by letter , a jungle that takes you deep inside , a spacecraft takes you very height , if you Haven`t read Sagan , you haven`t read at all :)
