ABVR: The best explanation of what science is (and why it matters) that I've ever read.
horacio.salazar: Almost poetic. In this book Ssagan is like the Ray Bradbury of science.

Explicações
ABVR : A fascinating book, but one about technology . . . and technology rooted in the craft tradition, rather than science, at that.
