Can you recommend science or math books (non-fiction) that are interesting but accessible to someone with a limited math/science background?

I'm looking for interesting, well-written books that are explanatory or descriptive of some scientific or mathematical aspect. But I'm very much a verbal over a math person (for lack of a better way to describe this) and while I'm relatively well-educated, my science ended with the intro college level courses and calculus stymied me on the math side. Recommended books can be intricate and detailed, but hopefully also comprehensible with this limited knowledge base.
