The Magic of Reality

Richard Dawkins

This is a wonderful book. With chapters like 'Who was the first person?', 'What is the sun?' 'What is a rainbow?' what is there not to like. Richard starts off each chapter with what we used to believe, old myths and explanations for these questions from various cultures. Then he shows the current understanding among scientists and how we got there. It is a celebration of the world we live in and a wonderful introduction to these concepts. Some well know to me others new to me. Highly recommended at only 256 pages.
