  • Description

    We live in a world of many myths and supposed magical events. People all over the world have invented stories to answer question based on questions about things that don’t seem real. For example: the ancient Egyptians explained that the reason ‘night’ existed was because the goddess Nut swallowed the sun. However, science has revealed the real answer to all these questions.

    Summary of the Book

    Magic and myth has been explained to the layman through many extraordinary tales. This book helps you find the real answer to these questions and brings you to reality. This is explained to us using the magic of reality: science. It is packed with inspirational explanations of space, time and evolution with a bit of humour. Explore a wide range of natural phenomena and learn what stuff is made of, how old the universe is, the cause of tsunamis, and whether the first creature on earth was a man or woman. The text is a valuable source of information for generations to come.

    this book is outstanding .its a distillation of all of his work since the 'selfish gene'. he understands that once the mind is set its hard to save adults from this delusion named 'religion'.

    this book is a wonderful read for anyone within the age of 11 and 18.he dials down his vocabulary and everthing and the illustrations keep the interest alive. not that they are needed for keeping the interest alive it just makes the experience more enjoyable as a child goes through the war between 'what...

    Good for Ages 10-14, excellent for those above 14

    Richard Dawkins as always puts out information and philosophy in an extremely understandable way. The questions asked within the book are not only relevant to children but to adults as well.Specially those who lack a rationalist view of things and would like to have explanations that go beyond typical myths and religious dogmas.
    The book is for all ages, you dont need to be a child to ask how airplanes fly, how life/humans came to be and other simple yet profoundly deep ethical questions on n...

    Refreshing and informative But "ILLUSTRATIONS MISSING"

    The book is very informative, as said in other reviews, content is more intended for children in the age group of 11-16. But other people can also find it interesting to see how myths of different old civilizations were linked to one another as well as to natural scientific occurrence.

    The explanations are lucid and helps young readers to grasp the contents easily. But illustrations are absent. If you are gifting it for younger readers please get an illustrated version. This book has no sup...

    Rich Dawkins

    A very good book on the subject.. it is for the people who would read it with out a bias in favour or against some ideologies, religion etc. It presents you with the facts and easy to understand concepts which have otherwise been highly intellectualised by the pseudo scientists and religious bigets. Though meant for the teenagers as such but i feel everyone who is willing to know the truth should go for it .
    It comes with a affordable price. Thanks MR DAWKINS.

    Classy product

    Richard Dawkins truly deserves many praises for this simple yet powerful presentation of what he calls 'Magic of Reality', the real magic behind how things work. I finished the 1st chapter on the delivery date itself. The content keeps the reader glued to know more about answers to various important questions. Amazing book.

    illustrations missing

    I had purchased the paper back version of Magic of Reality. This book is the "text only" version. On the cover of the book mentions "illustrations" but the book has only text, therefore the cover is misleading.
