science

Anyone into science? I love to read anything about science, I have just finished a great book called 'Surely Your Joking, Mr. Feynman!' It is the memoirs of a world famous physicist, who worked on the first atomic bomb. It is very uplifting and has inspired me to begin a change in my life...

Feynman was brilliant and he lived a full life. I loved all of his books, except some of the lectures on physics. A few of them where above me.

I've been reading, off an on, Brian Greene's books. Both The Elegant Universe and Fabric of the Cosmos are very readable--except that the stuff he's writing about (parallel universes, string theory, etc) is so mind-bogglingly weird that I have to put the books down and check in with reality as I know it. But that's the kind of science book I love--one that shows how utterly weird the world is.
