What is learning ? 7 Books every STEM major should read and Why it matters

The first semester of my graduate studies in biomedical sciences was a painful, difficult, and monotonous series of “core” coursework. However, I constantly would find myself bored and unmotivated to study the material for these classes despite the fact that they were topics that touched on the same subjects I would recreationally read about in books. During these many attempts to drudge through and study for the various biochemistry, cell biology, and biotechnology courses, my mind would frequently wander off to the same question again and again.
