Vale muito a pena! Carl Sagan's last book inspires, provokes, entertains and informs. Although much of the material is dated, each article has a theme that is much more important than the information it contains, and not at all dated. How should we approach the questions of abortion, climate change, military spending, the threat of nuclear war, faith, reason, education, equality, politics, love, life and death?
Carl has been my inspiration since I can't see a day when his musings won't inspire me. While Carl is my hero, I don't accept all of his assertions and conclusions, and Carl would approve. Republicans as a party are anti-science, but I would not put that label on someone for being conservative as he does.
Shouldn't military spending be viewed as a percentage of a country's GDP rather than just dollars? Isn't the presence of brain activity just as arbitrary as any measurable property of a fetus in considering the ethics of abortion?
While I don't always agree with him, I do appreciate him tackling the hardest of questions. That he does so respectfully and compassionately is inspiring. I miss him every day. Sagan does it again in his last book. This one, a bit more user friendly and science light, is a wonderful read.

Sagan's prose is the master of. It's kind of emotionally heavy, which again, isn't necessarily bad. If you've read any other books by Carl Sagan, you'll recognize a lot of what's in here.
This book is a compendium of all the things he believed needed to be dealt with by the human species. For some issues, he brings up old ideas in new ways. For others, he repeats what he's already said before.
That being said I still immensely enjoyed the book. I'm a big fan of the late Carl Sagan and have read many of his books.
Most 5 stars. See my reviews.
This was the last book he wrote as he was dieing with a rare form of blood cancer. His wife Ann Druyan has 2 chapters she co wrote in the book as well as the Epilogue as Carl was dieing with pneumonia caused by his weakened immune system from chemotherapy against his blood cancer. She had to write the acknowledgements as Carl had passed away.
In Billions and Billions we see a picture of both the late Johnnie Carson a serious amateur astronomer and Carl laughing on the Tonight Show. Carl says he never used the term Billions and Billions but that it became linked to him as a possible description of all the stars in the galaxies.
