Einstein Atomized: More Science Cartoons by Sidney Harris

A collection of cartoons -- surprising enough about science.

Or engineering.  And rather geeky, too.  The mathematician who wondered what he was doing -- no Nobel prize in Math.  Sam Glade, private scientist, explaining his charges.  A scene with dinosaurs going "Moo," "Oink," or "Meow."  The Seven Ages of Man -- based on the dwarfs in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

An excellent book for those who know a lot of science.
