    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?

    Story

    This book gave clear explanations of a lot of things in science that I already knew about, but it was nice to have this refresher that explains things very clearly and shows the interconnectedness of everything. The myths that begin each chapter are great. It occurred to me that I'd like to get the printed (or Kindle) version of this and read it to my granddaughter some day when she's a little older. I didn't give it 5 stars because it is a bit on the simplistic side and didn't reveal anything that really amazed me. But I really enjoyed the listen (especially with Dawkins himself doing the reading along with his wife) so it's a solid 4 stars.
