This list from Nick Hood is a compilation of good Physics reads.
I think that there are a few that are left out.
I think anyone with an interest in Science will also love Douglas Adams “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” series. If you hate reading the radio series is out in audio format and is excellent to have on your small square things.
Don’t think that the 2005 film is anything like the radio series or books. As they say, anything with Don’t Panic on the cover must be good.
http://h2g2.com/ Douglas Adams read English at Cambridge University, but seemed to have such an uncanny knack for Science.
This is a great little series for lower school students. It is written by Lucy and Stephen Hawkings. Yes Lucy is the daughter of the famous theoretical physics professor.
