Got a chuckle from this xkcd entry on experimental methods.  Immediately thought of this list.  :-)

Hi: Drew:

I highly recommend the book:
The Beginning of Infinity: Explanations That Transform the World by David Deutsch.
He gets to the heart of what science is.
I like his changing "theory" to "misconception" as in Newton's misconception of gravity, Einstein's misconception of relativity, the quantum misconception of physics, &Etc.  His bottom line: 1. Problems exist 2. Problems can be solved.

I had that posted on my wall for student's amusement and instruction for several years.

My favorite is practical versions of Non-foster matching using negative impedance
that are reproducible and work for inductive antennas.

Place it right next to XKCD to the right of Linville.
