Pop books on Optics, Condensed Matter, and all other non sexy areas of Physics

    Pop books on Optics, Condensed Matter, and all other non "sexy" areas of Physics

    There's so many pop books on Quantum Mechanics (Philosophical implications), General Relativity, and The Theory of Everything, but are there any pop books on subjects like Condensed Matter, Materials Science, Lasers, Techniques used in Chemistry instruments (Spectroscopy, X Ray Scattering, etc), or even a Quantum Mechanics book that relates QM to *application* instead of the Philosophy?

    Thanks all.

    Not that I know of, no. You might try Scientific American Book Club though. They're at least a fairly comprehensive list of what the current popular science books are and classified roughly by subject as well.
