  • Captures the poetry and excitement of scientific understanding and discovery from 1900 to the present day.
  • Each essay or extract has been selected and is personally introduced by Richard Dawkins, producing a collection that is as wide-ranging and intellectually substantial as it is pleasureable to read.
