Cosmos

Carl Sagan
The best-selling science book ever published in the English language, COSMOS is a magnificent overview of the past, present, and future of science. Brilliant and provocative, it traces today's knowledge and scientific methods to their historical roots, blending science and philosophy in a wholly energetic and irresistible way.

Despite some almost religious kinda propaganda of atheism, this book is one of the most beautiful scientific literature. Even about atheism - I understand that some people really need very sound attitude and strong arguments to little bit open minds, so that was also ok. Unlike some other books of the genre (like from [a:Brian Greene|509|Brian Greene|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1227070497p2/509.jpg] or [a:Stephen Hawking|1401|Stephen Hawking|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1197404653p2/1401.jpg]) this one is not pure science - it is definitely literature, though not a fiction and Carl Sagan is as good writer as a scientist.

The peak of amazement and breathtakingness was reached at the chapter X and all the following chapters I read in kind of trippy mood and that was great experience!
