Dawkins has suddenly turned all Brain Cox. Far from his usual militant, uncompromisingly aggressive style, The Magic of Reality shares the beauty of nature and the universe in a fun and fascinating manner. Taking ideology from religious texts, Dawkins looks at the scientific reasoning behind the world we live in and breaks it down in a simple, easy to digest fashion. If you buy the hardback you’ll be treated to a beautifully illustrated coffee table book that the whole family can enjoy. If you go for the paperback you lose the images but are still left with a delightful and fascinating read that is also compact and portable.
