    Which science book is your favourite?

    I quite enjoyed "the Music of the Primes" by Macrus du Sautoy, and am about to start on my currently un-read Hawking's collection (I started "Black Holes and Baby Universes" when I was still in school, but gave up when it all went over my head. That, it shall be the first to be read...)

    "I Am A Strange Loop" is an excellent book. Thoroughly well-written, thought provoking, and entertaining at the same time. I recommend it highly.

    Don't even THINK about trying to drop the science in the Science Forum.

    Matters of Exchange (HJ Cook) is turning out to be a fascinating account of the 'Dutch miracle' in scientific history.

    'Soul of the White Ant' and 'Soul of the Ape' are favourite scientific texts of mine but for literary reasons. Same goes for works of Darwin (Erasmus & Charles) & von Humboldt.
