A fun and informative overview of physics, biology, astronomy, engineering and more, all filtered through my favorite TV show, Doctor Who. Not very in-depth, but the author admits that it's meant to be more entertaining than educational. Still, I did learn quite a bit about quantum physics, nanotechnology, cybernetics, and astrophysics.
