bookshelves: hard-science, better-than-most

We were all born in stars (really!), so it only seems natural for us to want to know how stars themselves are born. 100 Billion Suns is an good lay-description of how that happens. It does get a bit physics-y at times, but it is easily accessible to anyone who is willing to put a little effort into it. He talks about how stars die, but for a more complete, and more recent, discussion of that topic, I recommend Kip Thorne's "Black Holes and Time Warps"
