"The Future of the Universe"
I finished this book last week. Overall it was an enjoyable read. It talked about what could happen to Earth in the future based on different contexts: the Earth itself, the Sun, the Galaxy, etc. It's not a deep astronomy book so the lay reader can easily pick it up and dive in. I've always had an interested in books like this ("Deep Time" and "The Collapsing Universe" come to mind) and this book ranks up there. The ending chapters are not as strong as the others but that's picking a nit; the book as a whole was educational and worth the time invested in reading it.
