Brilliant - Cosmology 101 for adults. Readable, with a short narrative to draw you into some of the facts and theories, this is an excellent overview of astronomy and physics. Great for all laypeople interested in science.
If you're like me, the words "string theory" and "quark" and "special relativity" make you want to run in the opposite direction, or at least curl up in the fetal position bemoaning your own ignorance. This book is perfect for people like that -- Galfard covers a lot of really complex physics in a way that is easy to digest and not overly complicated. It's designed as a really basic introduction, so real science buffs will likely want something more rigorous, but the non-scientifically inclined will find this readable and entertaining -- and quite educational.
