What a great book, combining philosophy and science to explore the reality of "reality". Baggott ranges from Plato's caves, to Descartes and Kant, to Schrodinger's Cat. He discusses reality from 3 perspectives: socially constructed reality (so you thought money was real?), physical reality (all this time I thought my "red" was the same as yours), and finally how science deals with, or fails to deal with reality (to think that the universe may only be a collapsed wave function in a conscious mind). This book is written in a lighthearted manner making it enjoyable reading. Baggott draws heavily on movies, especially Matrix, and "far-out" literature such as the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, to help us understand the complex concepts presented.
