The Top Ten

1
Sean Carroll
Personable, knowledgeable, entertaining, and has high level material.
Clear and concise discussions in books, blog posts and T.V. /debates.
Amazing science communicator, up there with deGrasse Tyson and the late Carl Sagan.

2Stephen Hawking
Brief history of time, universe in a nutshell, essays explaining black holes, etc are some of his brilliant works. Truly what made me into physics.

Kiteretsunu

If you read either his past or his modern work, you are certainly in for a treat. That's undeniable.

4Jim Al-Khalili
One of the most underrated writers of today. He knows everything that's in physics, and makes the most complex matters as easy as counting.

5John Gribbin

6Brian Greene
He is able to explain deep science issues, very very precisely, using simple and regular analogies from current life... As Einstein required... Until you would not be capable of explaining it to your grandmother, you can not claim to truly understand it (science)

7Michael Brooks

8Caleb Scharf
Great for astrophysicists and cosmologists anywhere.

12Ethan Siegel

13Phil Plait

14Lee Smolin

15Peter Woit
The book Not Even Wrong along with a physics and math blog by that name

How is it possible that this name did not came up first? He is definitely the best writer, reasons: truly deep and crystal clear argumentations.
