The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Cosmos and renowned astronomer Carl Sagan’s international bestseller about the discovery of an advanced civilization in the depths of space remains the “greatest adventure of all time” (Associated Press).

    I have loved the movie for years. I was hesitant to listen to the book. Overall I was impressed. There were quite a few fundamental issues in the book that were different than the movie. Enough to feel it was a worth while listen. Some of the chapters on religion vs science were dull, but that may be because I've heard all the arguments before.
