Carl Sagan: A Life



Carl Sagan was one of the most celebrated scientists of this century ? the handsome alluring visionary who inspired a generation to look to the heavens and beyond. His life was both an intellectual feast and an emotional roller-coaster. Based on interviews with Sagan?s family and friends, including his widow, Ann Druyan; his first wife, acclaimed scientist Lynn Margulis; and his three sons, as well as exclusive access to many personal papers, this highly acclaimed life story offers remarkable insight into one of the most influential, provocative, and beloved figures of our time ? a complex, contradictory prophet of the Space Age.
