    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?

    What would have made The Magic of Reality better?

    Perhaps doing something other than belaboring the obvious...


    Has The Magic of Reality turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I would actively avoid ever choosing another title from this bore who must
    love the sound of his own hideous voice and Lalla Ward is a perfect match
    for this blowhard.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ’s performances?

    I would rather stick needles in my eyes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Magic of Reality?

    If the pretentious elocution of these two holdovers from the nineteenth
    century doesn't make you throw up in your mouth, playing editor is something
    these two boobs have somehow avoided in their careers; this material is
    far from magic, it's utter crap; but that's just my opinion.


    Any additional comments?

    Hopefully, the aforementioned is enough.
