The author shows that Carl Sagan's books are full of lies. Perhaps his biggest lie was his claim that we should generously fund SETI, because aliens from outer space may send us a message telling us how to avoid nuclear war. The truth is that neither Sagan nor anyone else has ever proposed a method for deciphering an alien message about political or diplomatic matters.
