This is a very good book, BUT you need to have some sort of background in Physics to read this book.
I've been following the arguments made by Peter Woit against String Theory for quite some time, and it's a pleasure to be able to have them all in a single volume.
I haven't done any physics work since that graduation but I still remain technically and mathematically oriented.
Woit does an excellent job. His mathematical knowledge enables him to identify the overreach of String theorists. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Charles L. Delamotte
Speak clearly about the almost insurmountable problems of the Superstrings Theory. In particular show the problematic nature of the supersymmetric extension of standard model. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Sérgio Antunes
its a good book that offers another point of view. it has a lot of technical and mathematical knowledge, sometimes its hard to follow.Published 1 month ago by Alejandro Mercapide
It has 19 chapters. It is difficult to grasp in spite of not being full of formulas. It requires a grasp of many theories applicable to Quantum Mechanics such as, Hilbert space,... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Roger Doger
The title of this book, "Not Even Wrong," is interesting. One meaning refers to a theory that "is so incomplete and ill-defined that it can't be used to make firm predictions whose... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Randolph Eck
The first half of the book reviews some history of physics and how we arrived at the standard model. It is in the second half of the book where things get more interesting. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Robert Veale
This is a book I wish I would have read back in 2006 when it was published. It gives a mathematical physicist's arguments against string theory. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jerry Lisantti
String theory has always been nonsense. Feynman saw it instantly and we owe its continued money-and-time wasting existence to the neurosis of Murray Gell-Man. Read morePublished 10 months ago by John Robinson
