Magic takes many forms around the world, chronicled in stories by people attempting to explain the burning questions of the world around them. But there is another kind of magic, and it lies in the exhilaration of discovering the real answers to these questions. It is the magic of reality - science
. Packed with clever thought experiments, dazzling illustrations and jaw-dropping facts, The Magic of Reality
explains a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena. What is stuff made of? How old is the universe? Why do the continents look like disconnected pieces of a puzzle? What causes tsunamis? Why are there so many kinds of plants and animals? Who was the first man, or woman? This is a page-turning, graphic detective story that not only mines all the sciences for its clues but primes the reader to think like a scientist as well.
