I have to say though, reading A Brief History' has really made me think. Unsurprisingly, the man is a genius - but he explains things so easily and with a great sense of humour. It's helped me understand some of the more complex issues regarding physics that I was struggling with, particularly how it is that black holes can appear to emit radiation and particles - despite being massively attractive gravitational singularities.
It also allowed me to come to some interesting conclusions myself. For example, utilising the simple fact that heat makes objects expand, it enabled me to come to this conclusion: I'm not overweight, I'm HOT.
