The A.V. Club put up this video last year of Steve Pinker recommending five science/psychology books that he particularly enjoyed or recommends:

One Two Three Infinity. . . Facts and Speculations of Science by George Gamow

The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins

The Big Picture by Sean Carroll

The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations that Transform the World by David Deutsch

How the Mind Works by Pinker Himself

I’ve read all of them save the two by Gamow and Deutsch, and share his enthusiasm for the ones I know. I’ve often given my own recommendations, some of which coincide with Steve’s, and hence needn’t put them here.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
