Books that every non-physicist should read

I am a student of mathematics, however, physics also has a great impact on my studying. I like reading physical book for broad audience, and some of them are : "The Elegant Universe", "The Fabric of Cosmos" by Brian Green, "The Black Hole War" by Leonard Susskind, "A brief history of time", "The Grand Design" by Stephen Hawking.

Could you please recommend me some others books?

I am so sorry if you feel my question is not appropriate or impolite.

Do you mean popular books? –  Qmechanic Aug 14 '12 at 4:24

I still love Feynman's "QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter". He manages to really explain how quantum field theory actually works, with very clever devices to describe complex amplitudes etc. There are lots of beautiful examples that show how this all relates to real world observations you will be familiar with. He also gave a lecture series based on the book which you can see here. –  Mistake Ink Aug 15 '12 at 12:15
"One Two Three ... Infinity: Facts and Speculations of Science" by George Gamow. –  renormalizedQuanta Sep 14 '12 at 3:41
This is "make a list", but there is a nice popular book by 'tHooft. –  Ron Maimon Sep 14 '12 at 3:59

1 Answer 1

"The Road to Reality : A Complete Guide to the Laws of the Universe" by Roger Penrose (should be a familiar name, as he was mentioned several times in A brief history of time) not only contains 'the laws of the universe' but also some of the underlying mathematical processes behind them.

I have the book and have skimmed through it, but have not yet "read" it. It's on my list of books to read.
