Hello all.  I'm looking for a book recommendation for my mom.  She is Catholic, and I'm not trying to convert her to atheism, but I think she might enjoy learning a little more about basic science.  I don't think she got much of an education on science at her Catholic schools all those years ago, and yesterday while playing a trivia board game with her, she was shocked and amazed to learn about the length of the human small intestine.  I'm looking for a book for adults that presents basic scientific concepts in an interesting and readable way and that stays away from religion.  Perhaps something that focuses more on biology.  Any ideas?  Thanks!

WOW... Jesus is here. Let's ask him stuff!

I'm sure I'm not the first to suggest this but, anything Dawkins! He has books on science and atheism that are all very well written.
