    The Quantum Universe, by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw.

    Provides a peek into how theoretical physicists calculate wavefunction, which is extremely rare for a popular science book intended for lay readers and which I appreciate.

    Why Does E=mc2? by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw

    What I like:

    The derivation of spacetime interval as an invariant without violating causality (Pythagoras vs hyperbolic equation)

    The derivation of energy-momentum 4-vector and their components in the spatial and temporal direction and their implications on conservation of momentum and energy

    What I don't like:

    Authors assume the readers are so mathematically illiterate to the point they come off as sounding condescending, insulting even. I doubt any readers who pick up a book with a title "Why does E=mc2?" can be so clueless about algebra and trigonometry.
