    Schrödinger's cat (http://www.amazon.co.uk/In-Search-Of.../dp/0552125555) and Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time (http://www.amazon.co.uk/372/dp/08575...istory+of+time) are great books.

    I would say have a look at the A Very Short Introduction books by Oxford, they assume no previous knowledge of the field discussed and are written by experts. Here is the "A very short introduction to Cosmology" and here is the "A brief history of time."

    Both of these are very nice books that I enjoyed reading. Definitely lighter material, so good for 'casual' reading
