Re: Recommend your favorite Science or Technology book.

Please allow me to jump in on the Sagan-wagon, since most of his endeavors were the most accessible and thought-provoking works of “popular science”, but I would like to suggest two of his works that have not been mentioned yet: Pale Blue Dot – A Vision of the Human Future in Space, and Dragons of Eden.

In addition, some of the others that come to mind:

The Panda's Thumb – More Reflections in Natural History by Stephen Jay Gould

The Case for Mars by Robert Zubrin

The Universe in a Nutshell by Stephen Hawking.
