5.0 out of 5 stars Sagan's fans: This book is worth reading, September 11, 2000

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Deep Time: How Humanity Communicates Across Millennia (Hardcover)
Benford's non-fiction is as good as his best science-fiction. His interest and knowledge on archaeology and biology is amazing for a physicits. The way he plays around the deep time subject using two real cases in the first half of the book is brilliant. Sagan's fans be aware. As is usual in his best Si-Fi, the two cases show in detail how real science is done and muddled by personal interests and pride.
Be a little patitient with "The Libray of Life", because the wait for the fourth part is worthwhile. The last part is a very interesting "state-of-the-art" briefing on global warming. Now I buy it! Sagan's fans, we may have already a worthy successor.
If you found this book interesting and you enjoy hard Si-Fi, I recommend you take a look at these Benford's novels: Cosm, Timescape and Artifact. The fun continues there (in fact these novels were first)
