Cosmos is one of the best-selling 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 14 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.

Fascinating summary of Carl Sagan's work.
Absolutely. Great summary and well distilled. Narrator is also excellent.
Enthusiasm, life, clarity. He keeps me engaged.
It made me more curious, which led me to buy the full version of Cosmos as well as other books by Carl Sagan like Pale Bllue Dot
