Eleven books that make you smarter about science

At B&N Reads Jeff Somers tagged eleven books that make science easy, including:
A Short History of Nearly Everything, by Bill Bryson

Bryson is a non-scientist approaching awe-inspiring scientific concepts with a layman’s perspective and a writer’s mastery of language. The end result is a book that will explain science to you in a fun, relaxed way. The sheer breadth of the material Bryson covers is stunning. Plus, it’s Bill Bryson, so you’ll be entertained as heck the entire time.
