Publisher Description

RETURNING TO TELEVISION AS AN ALL-NEW MINISERIES ON FOX
 
Cosmos is one of the bestselling science books of all time. In clear-eyed prose, Sagan reveals a jewel-like blue world inhabited by a life form that is just beginning to discover its own identity and to venture into the vast ocean of space. Cosmos retraces the fourteen billion years of cosmic evolution that have transformed matter into consciousness, exploring such topics as the origin of life, the human brain, Egyptian hieroglyphics, spacecraft missions, the death of the Sun, the evolution of galaxies, and the forces and individuals who helped to shape modern science.

“Brilliant in its scope and provocative in its suggestions . . . shimmers with a sense of wonder.”The Miami Herald
 
“Sagan dazzles the mind with the miracle of our survival, framed by the stately galaxies of space.”Cosmopolitan

No mis-interpretation here....

Void of censor, Mr. Sagan speaks of what he is taught prior to 1980- upon publication. No, the as-promised images do not appear on our iPads today, BUT, if you are to purchase this to be a picture-book; you are purchasing it for incorrect reasoning. This is a legendary read in the Universal world. Do not dis-credit.
