Good but Too Much About the Environment

by Ayzed on Sep 24, 2009

I was eager to read this book after, 'Demon-Haunted World' because it seemed to be the next thing anyone who reads Sagan would typically suggest. It starts off quite interesting but soon goes on and on about our neglect of the environment. This continues for several chapters and gets quite tedious at times. I do realize and understand that the environment deserves our strict attention but I really did not expect so much of this book to be devoted to it. Anyway, towards the end the book picks up again like it started. Sagan and his wife write about the issue of child abortion and finally, a chapter devoted to his struggle with a terminal illness. Overall light reading but not quite as good as, 'Demon-Haunted World'.

Howdy, Wish I had read this many years ago. So good that I sent copies to my Grandchildren. Matt.
