Growing Up features Oxford professor Richard Dawkins' five one-hour lectures, originally televised by the BBC, for The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures for Children, founded by Michael Faraday in 1825. Dawkins offers "a series of lectures on life, the universe, and our place in it. With brilliance and clarity, Dawkins unravels an educational gem that will mesmerize young and old alike. Illuminating demonstrations, wildlife, virtual reality, and special guests (including Douglas Adams) all combine to make this collection a timeless classic."
