Re: Recommend your favorite Science or Technology book.

it may be disputable whether experimental archeology would count as a science, but if you're interested in that field, I can wholeheartedly recommend all of Thor Heyerdahl's books. His theories on aquatic migration routes, based on building styles, specifically pyramids, may be overly bold, but at least he proved that with ancient boats these journeys were actually possible.
Also, he's a really good writer, entertaining and well-spoken, so that his books make a thrilling bedtime-read.
