The greatest 100 Science books of all time, according to Discover magazine.

Kuhn's book (see group bookshelf) got honorable mention, as did Hawking.

My own favorite "The Cartoon Guide To Physics" didn't make the cut.

Patrick Thanks for thinking of us...I'll check out the list.

I think Hawking's book "A Brief History of Time" had brought lofty physical theories and phenomena to the layman, and would have been a good contender for the Science book for all time top spot.

Alex (alexinmadison) | 31 comments Good point. I'm the furthest thing from a science geek and even I bought "A Brief History of Time" (and read it!!)
