The subtitle is "Reflections on the Romance of Science." This is a fun read, although the second half of the book is quite dated. Despite that, it is interesting to read what passed for state-of-the-art science in the '70s. Having recently read Flew's "There Is a God" and Dawkins' "The God Delusion," I found Sagan's Chapter 25 (The Amniotic Universe) lots of fun.
