Atom: Journey Across the Subatomic Cosmos
The legendary Isaac Asimov starts what is perhaps the finest of all his books with a simple query: How finely can a piece of matter be divided? But like many simple questions, this one leads readers on a far-flung quest for a final answer, a search that encompasses such fascinating phenomena as light and electricity and their components--strange but real bits of matter that challenge our assumptions about the very nature of time and space. 40 illustrations.

Asimov attempts to explain the unexplainable to non-scientists in three hundred pages. It doesn't work, but a nice effort nonetheless. Read full review
