9780552778909: The Magic of Reality: How we know what's really true

Magic takes many forms. The ancient Egyptians explained the night by suggesting that the goddess Nut swallowed the sun. The Vikings believed a rainbow was the gods' bridge to earth. These are magical, extraordinary tales. But there is another kind of magic, and it lies in the exhilaration of discovering the real answers to these questions. It is the magic of reality - science.

Packed with inspiring explanations of space, time and evolution, laced with humour and clever thought experiments, The Magic of Reality explores a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena. What is stuff made of? How old is the universe? What causes tsunamis? Who was the first man, or woman? This is a page-turning, inspirational detective story that not only mines all the sciences for its clues but primes the reader to think like a scientist too.

Richard Dawkins elucidates the wonders of the natural world to all ages with his inimitable clarity and exuberance in a text that will enlighten and inform for generations to come.

Recensione:

"Dawkins has a gift for making science enjoyable ... [He is] one of the greatest scientific writers/explainers of all time." ( Bill Gates)

"A charming and free-ranging history of science." ( Sunday Times)

"Prodigiously illustrated and beautifully designed ... I cannot think of a better, or simpler, introduction to science." ( The Guardian)

"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." ( The Financial Times)

"It's the clearest and most beautifully written introduction to science I've ever read. Again and again I found myself saying "Oh! So that's how genes work!" (or stars, or tectonic plates, or all the other things he explains). Explanations I thought I knew were clarified; things I never understood were made clear for the first time." ( Philip Pullman)

Descrizione del libro:

An inspiring introduction to science and a fascinating exploration of the natural world.
