Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Cosmos was the first science TV blockbuster, and Carl Sagan was its (human) star. By the time of Sagan's death in 1996, the series had been seen by half a billion people; Sagan was perhaps the best-known scientist on the planet. Explaining how the series came about, Sagan recalled:

I was positive from my own experience that an enormous global interest exists in the exploration of the planets and in many kindred scientific topics--the origin of life, the Earth, and the Cosmos, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, our connection with the universe. And I was certain that this interest could be excited through that most powerful communications medium, television.

Sagan's own interest and enthusiasm for the universe were so vivid and infectious, his screen presence so engaging, that viewers and readers couldn't help but be caught up in his vision. From stars in their "billions and billions" to the amino acids in the primordial ocean, Sagan communicated a feeling for science as a process of discovery. Inevitably, some of the science in Cosmos has been outdated in the years since 1980--but Sagan's sense of wonder is ageless. --Mary Ellen Curtin -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

“Magnificent . . . With a lyrical literary style, and a range that touches almost all aspects of human knowledge, Cosmos often seems too good to be true.”The Plain Dealer

“Sagan is an astronomer with one eye on the stars, another on history, and a third—his mind’s—on the human condition.”Newsday

“Brilliant in its scope and provocative in its suggestions . . . shimmers with a sense of wonder.”The Miami Herald

“Sagan dazzles the mind with the miracle of our survival, framed by the stately galaxies of space.”Cosmopolitan

“Enticing . . . iridescent . . . imaginatively illustrated.”The New York Times Book Review

I can confess it: I became an astronomer because of this book and the corresponding TV series, and I don't regret that. I asked this to be my birthday present when I was 10 or 11, it was 1600 pesetas (an expensive book at this time), and I read it several times. Since them I feel the emotion of these pages, and their strength. When I read this again, I cannot avoid to "float" by the great feeling. A must for anybody who wants to understand this world.

I bought this book when I was perhaps 10 years old - it was the first expensive thing I've bought from my own money, and it was one of the best purchases in my life. This is more than a simple book about facts; Sagan is able to give the reader an impression of the fascination not only of astronomy, but of the triumphs of science in general. The brilliance of the ancient greeks, who calculated the radius of the earth only by the angle of an obelisk's shadow in northern and in central egypt. Kepler's genius and the elegance of its second law.... In addition, it covers many aspects of astronomy in a very interesting way. Extremely inspiring!

like any of sagan's books, a must read for everybody, no matter the age! The book is pretty much the same with the wondrous documentary series "Cosmos". The documentary and the book are just masterpieces. We live in a world of wonders, and we don't even acknowledge it... but read the book, watch the series, and you'll definitely be wiser and a better person!

Before I bought this book I was getting very interested in space and astronomy, so I wanted to read a book that was informative with a lot of facts.
I am happy to have chosen this book because it is very informative. Sagan has an interesting way of giving the reader plenty of facts by putting things into perspective. In other words, he has a very clear and clever way of explaining various things in space like stars, planets, light years, etc.
Another thing I liked about this book is that Sagan discusses not only astronomy, but a lot of history as well. He writes a lot about ancient Greece, for example, and past astronomers and scientists. In this way, the reader learns also a lot about past scientists, who they were and what they accomplished. Therefore, I would recommend this book to anybody because it gives not only pure facts about space but it offers a big interconnected picture of astronomy and space.

An absolutely must read for everyone, period.
I was introduced to Dr. Carl Sagan through, like many others, his television series "Cosmos". It was something new to me. Before that I used to view science and astronomy as something which neither I was qualified to know nor it was essential for me to know. "Cosmos" changed everything.
When I saw the book, I just couldn't resist buying it and since that day, I have read it four times. This book and "Cosmos" series can be considered the most important milestones in the popularization of science. Dr. Sagan worked all his life towards this goal and many people like myself are in his debt for introducing us to the marvelous world of science.
The book, as compared to the series, is not that simple to understand for a person who has no knowledge of some of the terms used in the book. But even the stuff that one can understand is awesome and makes one wonder about the universe we are living in.
My recommendation to everyone is to read this book and you'll be a different human being by the time you finish it. It will change the way you think.

Cosmos is a not a science book, it is about everthing that relates to our universe. Through its thirteen chapters, it tells the tales of human origin, scientific discoveries and space explorations of human. Many passages reflect strongly the beliefs and opinions of Carl Sagan (his faith on science as the true pathway to understanding the cosmos, his distaste of our own self-destructive instincts and mostly his sence of the insignificance of the human race against the universe), which I personally think is the most interesting and thought-provoking part of the book. All in all a GREAT book to read and treasure. Its one of those books which you borrowed it first from library, and then bought your own copy just because it's simply a book to own!

This is one of the best books I have ever read. It explains the world we are living in, but it is not just a scientific book. It unites so many fields of knowledge that I assume, Sagan must be a genius. Philosophy, Physics, Maths, Relegion, all that is coming together in a masterpiece that you will be unable to put down, eager to know what is happening on the next page, what miacles the author will reveal to you...It is just so beautyful...If you want to have Cosmos in a story by the way, read Contact. Sagan's works will stay with us along with those of Hawking...Buy this and change the way you live and look at the world you're living in.

Carl takes you on an astounding voyage of exploration and discovery. You'd have to be completely dead to not feel the love for the universe that we all should feel after reading this book. My mind was certainly broadened greatly and my view on all around me has changed forever. This is a book that all human beings should read.
