This was a pretty interesting science book. It explores many science concepts and realities. It was a pretty good book, and the author started off each chapter with a question, and myths that attempt to answer that question. One thing that I didn't like, though, was that Dawkins dismissed myths as being nonsensical. They may not be true, yes, but you should respect people's beliefs about such things. Also, this book sort of explained a lot of stuff (like evolution) that I already knew about. But for a complete layman, it's a good first science book to read. It has many illustrations, and did explore some things that I didn't know about it. Dawkins is also a really good writer, and writes about science in interesting ways.
