What If? – Randall Munroe

Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions. From the creator of the wildly popular webcomic xkcd, hilarious and informative answers to important questions you probably never thought to ask. Like, "What if everyone on Earth aimed a laser pointer at the moon at the same time?"

The Hot Zone – Richard Preston

The dramatic and chilling story of an Ebola virus outbreak in a surburban Washington, D.C. laboratory, with descriptions of frightening historical epidemics of rare and lethal viruses. More hair-raising than anything Hollywood could think of, because it's all true.
