Last book I loved and would recommend is Henri Poincaré's "Science and Hypothesis". I admire Poincaré since my student years. Although it has a rather general title the book is specified in mostly physics and mathematical theories and ideas.

Yesterday finished reading "The Last Executioner" written by Chavoret Jaruboon a prison guard who executed 55 criminals in Thailand between 1985 and 2002. An interesting book combining biography, criminal stuff and thriller maybe a bit chilling at places - contains detailed descriptions of executions performed by submachine gun. :)

Randall Munroe's "What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions"

Jules Verne "The Light at the end of the world" - just a funny coincidence, or an inspiration or something similar (sorry if this question already was asked once)?

"Once a jolly hangman" - biography of Darshan Singh who hanged about 1000 people during his more than 50 year career in Singapore. It contains some interesting thoughts about the death penalty, hard born criminals, justice system of Singapore, etc. :)
