Flights of Fancy: Defying Gravity by Design and Evolution - by Richard Dawkins

As a science AND aviation AND Richard Dawkins enthusiast this new Richard Dawkins book has really caught my attention. Would anyone else be interested in a group discussion of his new Flights of Fancy: Defying Gravity by Design and Evolution. The book is out right now on in Kindle format and available for pre-order in hardcover for a May 1, 2022 release. But don't we all have a Kindle by now?

I'm about to create a non-fiction poll and this book will be on the poll as an option.

Since this book is being described as a "unique collaboration" between Dawkins and a talented artist (Jana Lenozova), I'm thinking it would be better to have the physical book. Unfortunately, the paperback version doesn't come until March. I might just splurge on the hardcover. It looks good.

I'm guessing the softcover version of FLIGHTS OF FANCY has already been released in Britain. Some booksellers on abebooks.com have it for sale for about $17 (free shipping). I just ordered my copy.
