Ok, enough with the politics and world isuses...
My main interests lie in the fields of science and mathematics (and philosophy realted to these areas) and as such I tend to read alot in these subjects. I was wondering if anyone here has some interesting reads in any particularly obscure fields. The more obscure the better. It doesn't matter if they are aimed at professionals in the field or lay persons.
For instance, I am working my way thru a book on genomic analysis called Discovering Genomics, Proteomics, and Bioinformatics, by A.M. Campbell & L.J. Heyer which is a text book aimed at undergrads in biology with at least two years of math and physics.
Other good stuff--in the fields of physics which I consider fun reads include The Odd Quantum, by Sam Treimann. I am also looking for some books in game theory (not D&D) if anyone has any title suggestions.
