Ever since I picked up the Cosmos book from my parents' bookshelf at a young age, Astronomy has been a passion of mine (I almost studied Astrophysics after reading Sagan led me to Hawking, before opting for CompSci). The book absolutely fascinated me. As I got older and continued to read the book, my world view was shaped to look at everything from the top down, starting with the big picture -- which has made me very successful in my career as an IT professional.
I plan to pass the book, DVD collection, and whatever else I can on to my children.
Thanks, Carl. You will always been remembered as my first non-fictional childhood hero.
