================================== "Most wanted particle" ,by Jon Butterworth. The hunt for the Higgs Boson, which ended successfully (and with a Nobel laureate in 2013). An amazing inside story about the most basic particles. Higgs boson is also called the 'God particle', and it is  the one who can create mass from energy. Highly recommend, but it would definitely help if you did take a course in quantum mechanics etc. June-17-2017. "Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture: A Novel of Mathematical Obsession" ,by Apostolos Doxiadis. The beauty of pure mathemtics, and pursuing interest in a susbject for it's own aestethics and beauity. January-01-2017. "The Martian" ,by Andy Weir. Fiction. NASA astrounaut stranded on Mars. Interesting 'action/thriller' kind of book. A somewhat interesting question: What is the value of human life? (and i mean in dollars!). OR maybe it's priceless? January-26-2016. "Moonwalking with Einstein", by Joshua Foer. (Boomook as well) Non fiction. The subtitle is: "The art and Science of Remembering Everything". A year long journey into the art of memorizing stuff. With Google and computers at our fingertips, relying on external-memory is the norm. Is there no value to actual memorization? Very readable and enjoyable. Recommend! Oct-06-2013. "Carry On, Mr. Bowditch", by Jean Lee Latham. Motivating book on the development of maritime navigation. Not one formula in there! 2011.
