Science Fiction

  • Dune

    by Frank Herbert Year Published: Average
    One of the standards in Science Fiction. It takes a little bit of investment in the beginning, but it's well worth it. Note: the rest of the books in the Dune series don't necessarily measure up to the original

  • The Foundation Trilogy

    by Issac Asimov Year Published: Easy Reading
    A classic set of books about the far future. The first three books are really all that you need to read: Foundation, Faoundation and Empire, and Second Foundation. Pretty fast reading, and very interesting.

Science Non-fiction

  • A Brief History of Time

    by Stephen Hawking Year Published: Average
    A nice book at an introductory level, dealing with ideas such as black holes, relativity, and time travel. Look for an illustrated version.

  • Conceptual Physics

    by Paul Hewitt Year Published: Easy Reading
    Yes, it is technically a textbook, but not like any other you've seen. It's full of cartoons and clear explanations without much math. This book could be a great supplement for the course, or just some pleasant reading (yes, really) for someone interested in science.

  • The Elegant Universe

    by Brian Greene Year Published: Average
    An introduction to modern physics, including relativity, quantum mechanics, and string theory. It starts off quite readable for a high school physics student, but gets pretty complex by the end.

  • The Fabric of the Cosmos

    by Brian Greene Year Published: Average
    A follow-up to The Elegant Universe, but they can be read in either order.

  • The Physics of Star Trek

    by Lawrence Krauss Year Published: Easy Reading
    A physicist takes a look at some things like warp speed, time travel, and teleportation. Can any of these ideas ever be realized?
