Read A Brief History of Time and Universe in a Nutshell
 
Are those books accessible to readers without a science background?

Yes, they are written for a lay person.

A Brief History of Time actually provides a good first explanation into thermodynamics without presupposing any knowledge of physics, chemistry, or mathematics.

What an odd thing to say! I've read it several times and never thought it said much of anything about thermodynamics!

I could very well be going insane (or having poor memory, it's been years since my last read) but I seem to remember him describing entropy a good deal in the section about the arrow of time. There might be some other stuff about thermo in there but that was the part that stuck with me.
