Hey boys.

I'm not a total retard when it comes to the hard sciences, but what are some good books to understanding scientific concepts?

Nothing particular, I suppose. I like physics- astronomy interests me very much. I'd like to know what "quantum mechanics" means or what "quantum computing" can do.

I'm not necessarily looking for a Dummies' Guide, nor am I trying to pursue common pop science. I'd just like to really understand the world around me.

check out princeton companion to mathematics, a lexicon that gives detailed overviews of that sort.

a kind of historical anthology: world of mathematics (4 vols) compiled by James R. Newman in 1950s
