MAGIC OF REALITY: How We Know What's Really TrueRICHARD DAWKINS Book Number: 88225 Product format: Paperback
What is reality? What is magic? Who was the first person? What is the Sun? What is a Rainbow? Are we alone? Why do bad things happen? What is a miracle? Packed with inspiring explanations of space, time and evolution and clever thought, Richard Dawkins explores a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena in his inspirational detective story that mines all the sciences for its clues and also primes the reader to think like a scientist too. Magic takes many forms. The Ancient Egyptians explained the night suggesting that the goddess Nut swallowed the Sun; Vikings believed a rainbow was the gods' bridge to earth. Read the fun and colourful stories from ancient peoples such as the Norse god Odin walking along the seashore with his brothers when they came upon two tree trunks and many other modern urban legends, today whizzing their way around the Internet. 267pp in paperback.
