WHY: Maybe I am a little biased by putting this book in but it is my #1 favorite book (feel free to make assumptions).

This book will make you think twice before speaking in absolutes and make you question your understanding of humans and your perception of the world. Enjoy.
WHY: Carroll explores how the world works at the quantum level, cosmic level, human level, and how that connect to each other.
WHY: The book provides a guide of human history and work in quantum physics to look for a deeper order of beauty in nature. Again, this will provide some perspective and possibly change your view of the world.
