    We already have quite a number of threads here about choosing a book for a particular topic, like quantum mechanics.

    What sort of book are you looking for? What topic, and what level?

    Thanks. I will check out the threads you mentioned. I'm interested in a variety of diverse topics. That's why the question was vague. The level of difficulty can range from lay to graduate student. I am interested in what those of you recently found to be worthwhile in your own areas of study.

    Well, there are probably several thousand books that fit that request. Maybe you should consider narrowing it down a bit.

    In my twenties I came across a couple of neat books by Emilio Segre, called From Falling Bodies to Radio Waves and From X-Rays to Quarks. Also back then I came across some books by Abraham Pais, a colleague of Einstein: Inward Bound and Subtle Is the Lord, the latter being a biography of Einstein, but also including a fair bit of his theory.

    Janitor,
    Thanks.....I appreciate the input. I am not familiar with the books you cited. I'll take a look at them.
