comment of the week, cotw

One of my mentors in college always told me that a big part of being successful and generally good at this thing we call life is knowing what you don't know. I've started realizing there are big holes in my general knowledge recently–I can tell you a bunch of random facts about a lot of things, or understand the outline of an issue, but I feel like I'm lacking a lot of deeper knowledge. If I was the kind of person to contemplate going back to grad school, now is the time that I'd probably do that, but I'm not–so please recommend some good non-fiction about science or history to me in the comments. I want to find a happy medium between "I know one fact about whales" (they can get sunburned), and "I have only read non-fiction, with the exception of Moby-Dick, about whales for the past year."
