Are we on the brink of a new Dark Age of irrationality and superstition? In this stirring, brilliantly argued book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Dragons of Eden and Cosmos shows how scientific thinking can cut through prejudice and hysteria and uncover the truth, and how it is necessary to safeguard our democratic institutions and our technical civilization.

Review:

Carl Sagan muses on the current state of scientific thought, which offers him marvelous opportunities to entertain us with his own childhood experiences, the newspaper morgues, UFO stories, and the assorted flotsam and jetsam of pseudoscience. Along the way he debunks alien abduction, faith-healing, and channeling; refutes the arguments that science destroys spirituality, and provides a "baloney detection kit" for thinking through political, social, religious, and other issues.

About the Author:

Carl Sagan, perhaps the best known scientist of our time, is the author of Cosmos, the bestselling science book ever and the basis for his award winning television series. A Pulitzer Prize winner, he received the highest award of the National Academy of Sciences. Pale Blue Dot and The Demon-Haunted World are available from Brilliance Audio.
