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
