Remember when childhood involved actual learning, with construction of physical devices and uses of chemicals now considered too dangerous even for adults? Go check out Lindsay's Technical Books, reprints of old classics.

Sort of in this vein is a book I read recently, Uncle Tungsten by Oliver Sacks. Most of it was about chemistry experiments he did in the 1940's which children would never be allowed to do today. Highly recommended.

That's the second recommendation of that I heard yesterday. Book list gets longer.
