This work presents astronomy from the standpoint of estimating the likelihood of extraterrestrial life and the possibilities of finding it.

The book's final chapters deal with the issue of UFO reports and with Enrico Fermi's famous question, "where is everybody?" The book is suitable for college freshmen with no background in mathematics.
