[A New Kind of Science] A New Kind of Science
By Stephen Wolfram

This book contains fundamental new insights regarding how we currently model nature with mathematical models and how we may have been lulled into a comfortable corner of convenient problems by not delving deep enough. Surprisingly readable - in fact, very engaging!

[Nightwatch : A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe] Nightwatch : A Practical Guide to Viewing the Universe
By Terence Dickinson

Absolutely the best book for learning your way around the night sky and a great introduction to astronomy in general. We recommend the wirebound version (this one) so that you can lay it out flat while observing.
