    Suggest me some books

    I'm down for anything ranging from fantasy over social theory to physics and applied maths.

    so, Basically the entire spectrum, fire away

    Anything from Guy Gavriel Kay.

    Best starting place would be Lions of Al-Rassan. Fantasy novel set in a fantasy version of Reconquista Spain.

    Try the Keys to the Kingdom Series by Garth Nix starting with Mister Monday. It’s a fantasy series and personally really enjoyed the world building from this series.

    hmm... It might be too much, but I think it's worth the read if you really want to have one of the best foundations in math

    The ENTIRE "For The Practical Man" series, it's for math. It's a 5 book series, once you're done with them (and understand them) you will pretty much have the same (if not better) knowledge of math than the guys finishing architecture faculty and shit. Basically you'll be REALLY good at almost everything related to math and have a solid foundation to go into advanced stuff.

    ------------------------------------

    ↑ That's one recommendation for math, now for another recommendation. Steven Hawking, A Brief History of Time! You won't regret reading it. I don't have to tell you the topic since it's Steven Hawking Just read it if you haven't yet.
    Stay a while, and listen!

    I am the great mighty poo, and Im going to throw my shit at you.

    Get over here!

    Wow. I didn't think someone would say something as bold as suggest me some books from the entire spectrum, and that's not sarcasm btw. But if you're more specific into what you're into, it becomes easier to suggest.
