On a whim, I've decided to start writing some top five lists. And, because five and Friday both start with 'f', I'm going to post them each Friday. Today it'll be my top five favorite popular science books that I have read.
1. The demon-haunted world: Science as a candle in the dark, Carl Sagan
2. Mapping the deep: The extraordinary story of ocean science, Robert Kunzig
3. The world without us, Alan Weisman
4. The elegant universe: Superstrings, hidden dimensions and the quest for the ultimate theory, Brian Greene
