I recently was recommended "The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science (Hardcover)", by Natalie Angier, http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Whirligig-Beautiful-Basics-Science/dp/0618242953 and it is amazing.  It covers biology and chemistry in such a wonderful way that it makes me sad I've only cared about physics for the last few years.  I highly recommend it.
