Books that explain the science of cooking?

I am looking for a book/website or other resource to help me gain a deeper understanding of cooking and to help me move beyond just being able to successfully follow recipes. Although I can cook well I don't necessarily understand why things work, or why certain processes are necessary. Any suggestions?
