    365 Starry nights. Casual Astronomy book, but has lots of interesting information and diagrams.

    A non mathematical introduction written as an intro for High School students is in the Greenwood Guides to the Universe, Cosmology and the Evolution of the Universe. The e-book version is better value.

    A great popular book, perhaps somewhat outdated, is

    S. Weinberg, The first Three Minutes

    Thanks, a lot for the help. I read 4 of them and they were very great. I found universe in a nutshell, also pretty great. :) I will read the first three minutes next week :)
