Re: Recommend your favorite Science or Technology book.
Maybe an odd choice, but I got a lot out of The Self-Aware Universe
by Amit Goswami. It's a bit out there on the edge of Quantum physics, where it can evaporate into philosophy. Or maybe it's a philosophy text that takes Quantum physics and Mind/brain theory seriously. But it's a good book.
