Unweaving The Rainbow by Richard Dawkins

This book is intended as a response to the claim that scientific understanding of the world is incompatible with a sense of wonder.

Dawkins covers a range of topics, in each pulling out some unexpected and cool things that have been discovered, so from that point of view I guess he succeeded.

It's unusual for him, in that not all of it is about biology. He addresses some other areas to show interesting bits and pieces.

Well worth reading.
