The Elegant Universe was good too, but it didn't really affect me the way that The Fabric of the Cosmos did. String theory is just too far removed from the things we see every day to have blown my mind in the same way.

Light, matter, space, speed, and time are things (or at least concepts) which we live with every day, but they're provably very much different from how we perceive them. That blew my mind.

Tibetan Book of the Dead, Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, both wonderful books. Fascinating stuff.
