I read that book when I was 15yo it changed my life and the way I looked at the world.  Sagan was brilliant.

He really is was of the most brilliant humans, I think, to ever live. I can hardly imagine his perspective on reality, with the knowledge and unique way of thinking

that he had. I've tried my best to suggest his books to anyone even slightly interested, because they really will change your life.

 

There's an awesome Tribute series of videos on YouTube about him if you're interested. It is composed of audio clips of him narrating portions of his books,

video clips taken from the internet and from his series cosmos, and accompanying music in the background. There's no way someone can watch this series and not be

changed, at least in some small way.

 

My favorite is #11 The Story of Everything. You don't necessarily need to watch them in order either. I'd definitely say check this one out. I get waves of goosebumps watching it. :)
