Just started reading this finally, after having it staring at me at the top of my book pile for a couple months.
31 pages in, and it's already excellent.
Sagan's already essentially made all the points I have on this blog about the dangers of superstition and credulity, and the importance of science in just the first couple chapters.
I suppose I could have saved a lot of typing by just telling people "read Demon Haunted World", but, you tell people to read books, they more often than not don't.
Or, they pull "*sneer* yeah, you tell me to read some book, rather than have anything to say in your own words", like that's some upper-hand giving argument.
Well, I said it all in my own fucking words.
