Geons, Black Holes, and Quantum Foam: A Life in Physics.
Bigger, though not as dense as Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time, this autobiography by one of the most important American physicists of the 20th century offers a bird's-eye view of most of the folks (Albert Einstein, Enrico Fermi, Niels Bohr, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Richard Feynman) who developed the theories and discovered the secrets of space and time.
It is also a fascinating tale of the passions that fuel our quest for knowledge--and the adventure of learning.
