Fermat's Last Theorem by Simon Singh

This is a most delightful book about mathematics. I've never known an author who has made mathematics and number theory so accessible to all. The history of it is told in wonderful, almost thrilling way. Anecdotes and funny stories share the pages with scientific explanations.
Frankly, I never realised maths could be so exciting !
Anyone who's the least interested in science will enjoy this nugget to the full.
Back and Bed: Ergonomic Aspects of Sleeping by Bart Haex
The author has managed to combine a detailed analysis of sleep, both physical and physiological aspects, with a scientific approach on how to model/design sleeping systems.
It's a first in showing the reader practical guidelines on personalised sleeping systems, based on clear scientific findings. All models and guidelines are backed up with thorough and sometimes new insights.
A very good step in tackling this new and complex subject, which I hope will be followed by more scientific results.
