I love science books, but I have a hard time reading them (especially the physics-based ones) after they're a decade or so old. I just assume that the world of science marches on quickly enough to make things from the 90's somewhat outdated, at least at the further fringes of physics. So I'm curious as to what you'd recommend from the last decade or so of science and math writing, assuming an above-average knowledge of the basics of physics on the part of the reader, without getting too technical.
Some of my favorite science books are Hyperspace by Michio Kaku, Black Holes and Time Warps by Kip Thorne, among others. I like the general overview kind of thing, but I don't mind something that tackles a specific topic thoroughly.
