Response to babylonsister (Reply #4)

5. I can recommend a book.

It is not a physics book, but it was written by one of the twentieth centuries greatest physicists, and a truly wonderful teacher. It is autobiographical and truly fun read, even if you know jack shit about physics. It does give a look into the type of person who may like physics.

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman by Richard Feynman is a collection of anecdotes by the very mischievous genius, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman. My mother always loved that book, and she knew bupkiss about physics. (Of course, I turned her on to it just as she turned me onto the importance of reading in my early life.)

Available in paperback, and it's cheap.
