Resolved Question: 'The road to reality'

Had to take a year or two off of Uni due to financial difficulties. Studied biomedical engineering for two years.
Reading The road to reality by Penrose. Would you recommend any other books of that type that could help to gain deep understanding of science (mathematics, physics)?
What is your opinion on that book?
