Einstein’s Genius Club by Burton Feldman

Einstein, Russell, Gödel and Pauli met weekly at Einstein’s house in Princeton during the winter of 1943-44. There they talked about a variety of topics. Using this as the start of a discussion of the history of science and math, Feldman manages to cover much of the science conducted during the first half of the 20th Century. Although this gives only a broad overview, it is quite interesting to see what a small world the scientific community is, and how they interacted through two world wars and their own personal arguments. Although I would not recommend this to someone who has a lot of scientific knowledge, it is a great chance for non-scientists to explore the topic of quantum mechanics.
