    Description*A "New York Times Bestseller" In this book, his last, Carl Sagan again demonstrates his extraordinary ability to interpret the mysteries of life and the majesty of the universe to the lay reader. He provides clarity and understanding for an audience eager to make sense of the world and goes beyond that as he illuminates the strongly held belief that we have the ability to change things for the better. In their posthumous award to Dr. Sagan, the National Science Foundation declared that his "research transformed planetary science, " and that "his gifts to mankind were infinite."

    In the final book of his astonishing career, Carl Sagan brilliantly examines the burning questions of our lives, our world, and the universe around us. These luminous, entertaining essays travel both the vastness of the cosmos and the intimacy of the human mind, posing such fascinating questions as how did the universe originate and how will it end, and how can we meld science and compassion to meet the challenges of the coming century? Here, too, is a rare, private glimpse of Sagan's thoughts about love, death, and God as he struggled with fatal disease. Ever forward-looking and vibrant with the sparkle of his unquenchable curiosity, Billions & Billions is a testament to one of the great scientific minds of our day.
