About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. AbeBooks has millions of books. We've listed similar copies below.

Description:

No first edition statement. Symmetrical number line reads 2 4 6 8 9 7 5 3, only. As this is a typical number line for a Random House first printing, and as the original "Addenda" sheet is laid in, we presume this is a first printing, though it could be the second. Book will close its own text block; slight waviness to pages near the top. Jacket "good only"; slightly sun-faded to spine, and there has been some ink transfer from binding to verso of jacket where the top edge was once damp. So, this book is far from perfect, though it remains square, tightly bound, and easily read. Sagan "convincingly debunks 'alien abduction,' 'channelers,' faith-healing fraud, the 'face' on Mars, and much else." 461 pp. including index. Reduced from $37. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: 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.
