This book teaches the art of approximation: dimensional analysis, guessing, and lying. To illustrate these techniques, we study the physics of everyday phenomena. The audience for the book includes graduates and upper-level undergraduates in physics.
by Lucien Poincare - D. Appleton and Company
This book, while avoiding purely technical details, tries to make known the general results at which physicists have lately arrived, and indicates the direction and import which should be ascribed to those speculations on the constitution of matter.

Throughout this book, the authors discuss some open problems in various branches of science, including mathematics, theoretical physics, astrophysics, geophysics, etc. Some parts of these problems may be found useful for scholarly stimulation.
by Arthur S. Eddington - The Macmillan Company
Lectures that Eddington delivered in 1927. It treats the philosophical outcome of the great changes of scientific thought which had come about. The theory of relativity and the quantum theory led to strange new conceptions of the physical world.
