Science books to read

I came across this list of the “100 or so books that have shaped a century of science” at the American Scientist, when I was browsing Donald Knuth’s webpage (because his Art of Computer Programming is among the dozen influential monographs listed for the physical sciences).

Some familiar titles, and plenty of classics (i.e. books that everyone assumes everyone else has read, but haven’t actually read themselves).
