Endless Forms Most Beautiful by Sean B Carroll

A great introduction to the state of evolutionary development science. This is the study of embryology and growth at the cellular or molecular level, in the context of evolution.

It's a excellently written book, easily accesible to a layperson and full of interesting stuff. I was surprised at the amount of progress that has been made in understanding these processes, and what this understanding has shown about the history of life.
