Description
Perhaps the world's best-known evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins offers this sweeping introduction to the wonders of science, illuminating the ways in which the world really works through clever thought experiments and jaw-dropping facts. How old is the universe? Why do the continents look like disconnected pieces of a jigsaw puzzle? What causes tsunamis? Why are there so many kinds of plants and animals? Who was the first man—or woman? Beginning from the magical and mythical explanations for the wonders of nature, Dawkins's page-turning detective story reveals the exhilarating scientific truths behind these occurrences.

"I wanted to write this book but I wasn't clever enough. Now I've read it, I am."—Ricky Gervais

"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
