*The* book that started my romance with science and philosophy, I read it as a 12 year old and opened my eyes to the realization that things aren't always what they seem. Still withstands the test of time as one of the most accessible introductory accounts to relativity that I've read. It's so clear and well written, (including lots of diagrams) it's understandable to 12 and up.
