Carl Sagan’s Reading List

Few are the heroes of modern history more successful and inspired than the great Carl Sagan, and his 1954 reading list, part of his papers recently acquired by the Library of Congress, speaks to precisely this blend of wide-angle, cross-disciplinary curiosity and focused, in-field expertise—and is balanced with a healthy approach to reading and “non-reading”, with some books read “in whole” and others “in part.”
