Wow, that chapter from Sagan's book (of the same name) had often brought tears to my eyes. It gives such a "numinous" feeling, doesn't it ?

But Dragons of Eden was, IMO, one of his most "inspired" books. He was probably high on pot when he wrote it ... but superb writing nonetheless.

Of course, subsequently, I have read other writers who write equally well, if not better.
