Science for non-Scientist

Many people complain of Scientific theories being too tough to be paid serious attention. Many have curiosity to know about Astronomical phenomenon but shy away from reading any books wondering whether number of equations in there would be worth the effort. Also many of these people do not aim to be scientist so Mathematical Physics is not a top priority for them. Fortunately many esteemed Scientists have published books and created videos for such people. In this post I will share names of such books and links to their videos which can help them get a better picture of contemporary picture of Universe. None of them employs Mathematics that is generally used in describing Physics.

To top the list are following series:
