Although this audiobook contains information that was last released in 1997, it is still relevant because we humans continue to confuse myths with testable science. One only needs to read widely shared stories to see the effects of this error on such phenomena as immunizations, climate change, and alien abduction. The narration of this thoughtful audiobook is divided among Ann Druyan, who was Sagan's wife; Seth McFarlane, who reads the preface; and Cary Elwes, who carries the narration for the rest of the book. Elwes has a gentle British accent and a playful lilt to his voice that reflects the author's homey and accessible style. He does his best to keep the audiobook moving, but its sheer size is a bit of an obstacle, and Elwes sometimes gets lost in the words. Still, Sagan's warning is real, and Elwes delivers it credibly.
