Perhaps I missed it, and my apologies if so, but is there a thread for good science books? Evolution and associated topics of course, but others as well.
I picked up The Top Ten Myths About Evolution at a small bookstore but haven't found 10 minutes to read it yet. It looked good and like it might be a good read for non- to semi-science inclined people.
Basically I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about that book and/or any others to pick up. As to reader level...any and all to be honest. I want to be able to suggest easy, but accurate, reading at a layman level for friends and family if asked. I'm not saying a dumbing down of the concept, but something that can make complex ideas and confusing terminology and jargon comprehensible to the average person. For myself, I think I can handle something a bit more complex and probably could use the challenge, since my current job isn't that kind of mental stimulation. (Something cometh before the fall but if I could only remember what...)
Any suggestions appreciated.
