I wouldn't discount media other than books. Try the BBC documentary "The Story of Science" on DVD or Blu-ray.
There is also a book that goes with the series.

Alternatively, there are a large number of free science videos on iTunes.
That looks good. It's pricey for me right now, but something I can bookmark and check out later. I don't really discount other media, but a reason I like books is that I can put them in a backpack and carry them with me. You can sort of do this with DVD and Blu-ray, and that does look like something I would enjoy. I guess it's just nice to have that book in your hands. You know what I mean? Again, though, thank you Great Mambo Chicken, that does look interesting, and I've bookmarked it.
