    "Carl is one of the prominent intellectuals that I truly admire and look up to. Throughout his life, he always pursued to challenge the most enduring and fundamental questions relating to our existence. In his last book, Billions & Billions, which was published posthumously, he has summarized his thought and perception based on his experience and scientific facts regarding the cosmos and our tiny role as human beings in this empty vastness of the space. I am still fascinated by this man's humbleness and attitude toward life that pertains to its very core of being a human."

    "Carl Sagan was a great man, and an inspiration to me and scientists everywhere. "Broca's Brain" is a collection of essays, primarily on futurism. Some of them are a little dated, and others are almost scarily accurate. This is well worth the read for that. However, some of them are quite bland, and others are clearly obsolete, so I'm knocking off a point for that."
