When we humans first left the Earth and saw it from beyond the outermost planet, it appeared as a pale blue dot. As we complete the preliminary reconnaissance of our neighborhood in space, we need a long-term, over-arching vision of the human future. The man who brought the planets and the stars to so many of us suggests that our very survival depends on the wise use of other worlds. "Pale Blue Dot" reveals how science has altered our perception of who we are and where we stand and challenges us to weigh what we will do with that knowledge. Out of a sometimes painful recognition of our true place in the cosmos comes a vision of an exhilarating future, with a surprisingly spiritual impact.

From the Inside Flap:

The BookcassetteŽ format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.

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.
