    I'm looking for some books to read that can help me with Physics A Level course and, not textbooks but more general books so I can widen my knowledge of Physics and talk about them in my personal statement, also for personal enjoyment fiction/non fiction etc
    I really want to do Physics at uni so any recommendations would be really helpful

    Seven brief lessons on physics
    anything by Richard Feynman (Six easy pieces is good)
    In search of shrodinger's cat
    Three roads to quantum gravity (both a little outdated but still worth a read)
