  • A brilliant assertion of the wonder and excitement of real, tough, grown-up science

    A. S. Byatt, 'Books of the Year', Daily Telegraph
  • The way Dawkins writes about science is not just a brain-tonic. It is more like an extended stay on a brain health-farm ... You come out feeling lean, tuned and enormously more intelligent

    John Carey, Sunday Times
  • Beautifully written and full of interesting, original ideas. Essential reading

    The Times
  • For Dawkins there is more poetry, not less, in the rainbow because of Newton ... he weaves rainbows of wonder from other provinces of science and then unleashes his fury on those who accuse scientists like him of being unimaginative

    Sunday Times
  • Brilliantly entertaining and stimulating
