And clearly. It deserves the praise it gets.

Yes, that's a classic!

Since it hasn't been posted yet, I'd like to add one of my favorites from Kip Thorne (a colleague of Feynman and one of the founding fathers of gravitational wave astronomy) "Black Holes & Time Warps Einstein's Outrageous Legacy"

Also "The Demon-Haunted World" by the late Carl Sagan.
