Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark" might be the most important book I've ever read.
324 asbruckman I had dinner with him once at an MIT Media Lab event in the 1990s. He was a nice, smart man. I remember most strongly that he seemed burdened by everyone's expectation that hanging out with him would be hilarious. He wasn't that kind of funny. He was a thoughtful man who had interesting things to say, but he didn't crack a lot of jokes or say witty things all the time.

40 larockus I didn't realize it was his birthday, I just finished reading the Hitchhikers Guide again on Friday. Woke up this morning and watched the movie. (I know, it's not generally liked, but I enjoy it.) It's like my subconscious was trying to remind me to celebrate.
45 MDPlayer1 right after wanting to be a writer hit me like a car crash, Hitchhiker's was one of the first 20 or so books that were recommended as books I had to read in studying the craft. Blown away. I read the first two--I recently bought Dirk Gently, and plan on at some point also going back and reading the rest of the series. Funnily enough, though, at the beginning of my copy of Hitchhikers (it was the printing with all 5), there's a prologue by some writer. It goes on for 5-10 pages about Adams' life and his writing methods. At the end, you find out who the writer is--it was Neil Gaiman himself.
