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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
