Richard Dawkins is the world’s most famous evolutionary biologist and has spent much of his career revealing the wonders of science to adult readers in books like The Greatest Show on Earth and The God Delusion. In The Magic of Reality, Dawkins teams up with acclaimed artist Dave McKean to share the magic of science with readers of all ages. The Magic of Reality explains a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena and answers questions like: How old is the universe? What causes tsunamis? Why are there so many kinds of plants and animals? And who was the first man, or woman?

It is a treasure trove of fascinating information for anyone who has ever wondered how the world works and a must-have for this holiday season.
