Re-reading Gould at the moment. I'm up to "The Mismeasure of Man". Just wow.

A real lesson in how (unintentionally?) shitty social prejudice can inform (social) science. Terrifying.

I'm re-reading Bill Bryson's A Small History of Nearly Everything. It's one of the 'science made accessible' type books and it's just a fun read. Truly mind boggling when he presents some of the scales of things - like the actual size of our universe and the size of atoms.
