A good introductory science text with an emphasis on explaining away myths.I have listened to a couple of Dawkin's books and overall agree with what he and his partner have to say. I found the introductory chapters did a good job of explaining how science views and explains what reality is and the differences between data and observational based reality versus myths and beliefs based on misunderstanding and outright distortions. The latter chapters become a bit repetitious.
Although Dawkins and Ward do an adequate job of narrating, I think that the narration would be better done by professionals. Normally I like it when authors read their works, but in this case I am not so sure.
Yes. I would recommend it to younger people who would want to better understand how science views reality.
