I’m reading what most would consider dry, but to me pretty interesting, book on the history of modern physics. It really gets my juices going not to mention that it has a very human narrative, which goes a long way to convey the sense of excitement and awe that scientists get at comprehending the most fundamental, mysterious parts of nature and the universe.

Plus it has a great title too: Quantum Generations: A History of Physics in the Twentieth Century
