I got 8 out of 15. Not great, but, I think reasonably good. I only guessed correctly a couple of times, and on the ones that I got wrong, I was very much guessing.

Surprisingly, I got 10/15.
About 1/2 guesses.

@Greg Bernhardt: The 4th book has one of the alternatives giving his opinion on the book on the front cover, effectively ruling him out as the author. You may want to cover this name as well.

11/14, because one question I did not answer by mistake. I am happy, as these 11 are the basic knowledge for someone passionate about physics.

13 points out of 15. I have some kind of "obsession" with books and authors but there is always room for improvement!

12/15 I either knew them or I didn't. Have read 4, read into another 2.

A high score might not necessarily indicate extent of scientific knowledge, it might be more scientific gossip and pop science.
