Book Description

 The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True has been written by Richard Dawkins and illustrated by Dave McKean.

Magic has been known to take several shapes and forms. An ancient Egyptian mythology suggests that night takes place when the goddess Nut swallows the sun. Even the Vikings had a belief that explained rainbows, claiming that they were bridges used by the Gods to come to earth. Even though all of those seem magical, there is a different type of magic. Finding out the answers to important questions is the magic of reality and science.

The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True is filled inspirational answers and explanations to various phenomena such as evolution, space and time. These natural questions are answered with the help of humor and smart-thought experiments. The book asks questions such as what are things made of? What is the age of the universe? How is a tsunami caused? What was the name of the first woman or man?

The book encourages the reader to think and behave like a scientist and quarry for information from various sciences. The author tries to understand the natural world and opens up its wonders to readers of all ages. This book uses precise and clear text to help readers understand its concepts.

The Magic of Reality was published by RHUK in 2012 and is available as a paperback.
