Recommend me a popular science bookWatch this thread
I'm a relative newbie to popular sceince books, but I've recently read: The Selfish Gene, One Two Three Infinity, and The Elegant Universe, and I'd very much appreciate some suggestions for what I should read next. I'm interesting in all aspects of the sciences, but since I've read some stuff on Physics and Biology, but not Chemistry or Maths yet, I'd be particularly interested in books on those subjects. Thanks.
