Recommendations for pop Physics books

    Recommendations for "pop" Physics books

    Just looking for something to break up the Math/Physics studying. I haven't read many pop Physics books so I'm a bit lost, from what I heard there are some bad ones out there. I don't want anything too technical, just something where I can learn about the scientists and the work.

    I specifically want something with E&M's history and those guys. Maxwell, Faraday, etc.

    Or if there's any QM or maybe even Chemistry books that are good too.

    Thanks

    These I have in my native languange:
    https://www.amazon.com/Electric-Uni...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1235301636&sr=1-2

    https://www.amazon.com/mc2-Biograph...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1235301636&sr=1-1

    here are some more hits I got on amazon:

    https://www.amazon.com/Man-Who-Chan...bs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1235301546&sr=8-1

    https://www.amazon.com/Electric-Life-Michael-Faraday/dp/0802714706/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_b

    I have not read these two, but they seem to be what you are looking for. Good luck and enjoy the readings!
