Recommended non-textbook math and physics reading

Please excuse if this is a repost. I am looking for books (not textbooks) related to math or physics for pleasure reading.

Some personal favorites I can recommend are: 1) The Golden Ratio: The Story of Phi, the World's Most Astonishing Number by Mario Livio. 2)The Calculus of Friendship: What a Teacher and a Student Learned about Life while Corresponding about Math by Steven Stogatz 3) The Edge of Physics: A Journey to Earth's Extremes to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe by Anil Ananthaswamy

Cheers

How to teach Relativity to your dog by Chad Orzel. Very engaging and with occasional jokes. Also a very interesting introduction to Relativity for readers of any level (minimal Math involved).
