Books for physics students

I recommend 10 books for physics students - 5 popular science books to introduce concepts (including 2 bonus texts), 4 textbooks to bridge the gap from high school to university, and an extra book to make you a better scientist!

Also a good watch if you're stuck for a present idea for the aspiring physicist in your life.

My favourite books

A little old, but still accurate, summary of my favourite reads - including science fictional, biography, fantasy, and non-fiction! I've been making a conscious effort to read more since this was released, so eventually I will need to make an updated version. But for now this still captures my reading preferences!

Books that I would recommend to anyone

As outlined much more fully in the videos above, I have a few books that I would recommend to anyone. These are a mix of non-fiction, scientific and non-scientific, fiction, and textbooks. I'll outline the really top ones here, but I'd encourage you to watch the videos to get my full reviews. Titles and author names are links to the books' Amazon pages.
