I was certainly not a big books reader when i was younger, but one of the first i had read was : "A brief history of time". I was more fond of general scientific magazines or things like that... Why not a subscription to a good magazine ?
For a good SF book i know of and without hesitation : "The Broken God" by David Zindell...this book provide interesting new views on science, religion, world, and humans, and certainly inspire, without being too specialized, or difficult ;)).
