Subtitled "How We Know What's Really True". A stunning collaboration between a world-famous scientist and outstanding illustrator Dave McKean. This is the first book by Dawkins to be written for a young adult and family audience. Shows that there is a kind of magic that lies in the exhilaration of discovering the real answers to big questions, what Dawkins calls the magic of reality - science.
Richard Dawkins, geb. 1941 in Nairobi, ist Evolutionsbiologe. Seit 1995 hat er den eigens für ihn eingerichteten Lehrstuhl für Public Understanding of Science an der Universität Oxford inne.
"From the first sentence it reads with the force and fluency of a classic ... a luminous, authoritative prose that transcends age differences" The Times "Stunning in appearance ... the book is a triumph" New Scientist "The text is persuasive whatever one's age ... the chapter on rainbows has the clearest explanation of how they appear that I've ever seen" Financial Times "I wanted to write this book but I wasn't clever enough. Now I've read it, I am" -- Ricky Gervais "Prodigiously illustrated and beautifully designed ... I cannot think of a better, or simpler, introduction to science" Guardian
