The Geek Atlas, by John Graham-Cumming. Paperback.
This is a travel guide to 128 (a key number in binary) science-related tourist sites around the world. Each one is described in 2-4 pages, including sidebars about the related science.
I am more of a sci-fi geek than a science & tech geek, so I skimmed over much of the higer mathematics portions of the book. But my layman's knowledge of and interest in tech & science helped make the book a fun read, but its audience is definitely limited to science & tech geeks.
