Richard Dawkins – The Magic of Reality

This is awesome. I’m just sad it’s only an iPad app and not Android compatible. At least there’s a (allegedly gorgeous) hardback version! I’ll definitely be buying a copy.

The Magic of Reality By Richard Dawkins

illustrated by Dave McKean

When and how did everything begin? What is a miracle? What is the sun? Why do bad things happen?

Throughout history people all over the world have invented stories to answer profound questions such as these. Have you heard the tale of how the sun hatched out of an emu’s egg? Or what about the great catfish that carries the world on its back? These fantastical myths are fun – but what is the real answer to such questions?In this fully interactive, groundbreaking app, Richard Dawkins presents the real story of the world around us, taking you on an enthralling journey through scientific reality, and showing that it has an awe-inspiring beauty and thrilling magic which far exceed those of the ancient myths.
