      Billions is a bold, contemporary drama that melds the worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded.

But Sagan realizes that the project of merely spreading knowledge of objective facts about the universe is insufficient.

After the first two chapters, I was confused. They had the same heart-felt, easy-to-read style Sagan is known for, but this book seemed more private and by:   Billions is a drama with big aims and characters so complex that it almost dares you to figure them out.

But the show’s cheaply manufactured metaphors don't exactly inspire you to give it a go. Sometimes they're so absurdly obvious that they're borderline stupid, such as when a dog getting neutered inspires its owner to get cocky and buy a multimillion-dollar beach house.3/5.
