I'm looking for the sorts of books that remind you that science can solve most human problems, and what it can't solve are probably human issues that we'll be stuck with as a race forever. Probably looking for humorous fiction and non-fiction rather than drama or adventure/fantasy. (Don't want a downer before bed!) Ideally with short chapters, a wink, and a sigh. Books that are chicken soup for the scientific and secular humanist soul.
