Re: Recommend your favorite Science or Technology book.
The Elegent Universe by Brian Greene. Great book on the basics of relativity, quantum mechanics and string theory using little to no math, so it's really accessable.
Yep, that's a good one.
Another one I like, The Whole Shebang
by Timothy Ferris, is a little older, so not completely up to date anymore. What I really like is that Ferris explains cosmology and the theories and mechanics behind it in such a way that doesn't require the reader to possess a heavy background in the field, and it's much more readable (and somewhat closer to current) than Hawking's Brief History
, which can get a bit thick in places.

will be enormous fun, because we'll all get really smashed and wreck something."
