I didn't see a thread like this in the recent pages, so I will start a science books thread here. Personally, I have to admit that I am more of a non-ficton reader. One of my big interests is science. There are a number of excellent authors out there, including Steven Pinker, Richard Dawkins, Lawrence Krauss, Michio Kaku, Stephen Hawking, and so on. Also, some popular sci-fi authors have also written very good non-fiction works, like Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. What are some of your favorite science books and authors? Have you read any good science books lately?
