    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 was one of the most memorable moments of The Magic of Reality?

    All of it was awesome!!


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

    The way they took turns reading was really cool & the fact that it's their book!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The fact that Richard Dawkins & Lalla Ward both read it.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was excellent but not what I expected after "The God Delusion"; it was more of a precursor to "The God Delusion" which is a knockover book that EVERYONE MUST READ, (*Listen too)!!"The Magic of Reality" seemed like an advanced 8th grade to college 101 level biology, physics, quantum physics, chemistry & other sciences,( mostly biology), set to a colorful & whimsical tone - It's truly BEAUTIFULLY written & the fact that Richard Dawkins & Lalla Ward both read it taking turns made it even a greater experience ->Loved it!!

    I gave the hardcover to my son along with The God Delusion for his birthday and my 2 other sons got copies for Christmas - It mades an awesome gift & it's physically gorgeous too & beautifully illustrated.

    **Super impressive does not touch it!!**
