    Richard Dawkins, the world’s most famous evolutionary biologist, presents a gorgeously lucid, science book examining some of the nature’s most fundamental questions both from a mythical and scientific perspective. Science is our most precise and powerful tool for making sense of the world. Before we developed the scientific method, we created rich mythologies to explain the unknown. The pressing questions that primitive men and women asked are the same ones we ask as children. Who was the first person? What is the sun? Why is there night and day?

    Would you listen to The Magic of Reality again? Why?

    I have listed to it twice. The topics covered are so widespread over the body of scientific knowledge that they would peek the interest of anyone that I know. Even if a person has little or no interest in any field of science, the principles and ideas in this book are worth it just for the sense of wonder you get when you see reality again.


    What about Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ’s performance did you like?

    Both Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward read well throughout the book and maintain both a very calming yet interested tone. You can at times almost feel when they are about to deliver a good point. I do like the idea of having them both read as it provides variety.


    Any additional comments?

    This is really a book of wonder and magic. Its finest quality comes from the idea that it does not present the magic of things you cannot see or understand, but it is the magic of things that you can see and experience. This book opens the world and I highly recommend it to anyone, but especially to all children and parents.

    In chapters such as "During Your Swing Is Not the Time to Give Yourself a Lesson" and "How to Enjoy a Bad Round of Golf," the author guides golfers with simple yet powerful techniques to prepare for, execute, and, equally important, respond to the results of any golf shot. The author, Dr. Joseph Parent, is a PGA Tour Instructor who draws on his teaching experience to offer special methods that have led to amazing improvements in the games of professionals and amateurs alike.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book to several golfing friends and every one of them has reported at least a small improvement in their enjoyment of the game of golf. Of course, I play golf for enjoyment so that is the best any book can achieve.


    What did you learn from Zen Golf that you would use in your daily life?

    I have always enjoyed the ideas of Zen and the presentation here of some key concepts is excellent. Even if you do not play or plan to play golf, this book would be good even if you know someone who does.
