Superstring theory has been called "a part of 21st-century physics that fell by chance into the 20th century." In other words, it isn't all worked out yet. Despite the uncertainties--"string theorists work to find approximate solutions to approximate equations"--Greene gives a tour of string theory solid enough to satisfy the scientifically literate.
Though Ed Witten of the Institute for Advanced Study is in many ways the human hero of The Elegant Universe, it is not a human-side-of-physics story. Greene's focus throughout is the science, and he gives the nonspecialist at least an illusion of understanding--or the sense of knowing what it is that you don't know. And that is traditionally the first step on the road to knowledge. --Mary Ellen Curtin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you want to take a light deep into the world of physics this is a great place to start. Greene is completely honest about his field of study (could all be proven wrong and if... Read morePublished 12 days ago by TheDudeAbides
Haven't finished it yet but so far it's written very well. Brian does a great job in explaining advanced theories in a very understandable way.Published 24 days ago by Dennis Vijlbrief
Very enlightening, although some of it is beyond my level of understanding. I still enjoy it.Published 1 month ago by John Mc Guillan
I love this book. I can't say it is written for everybody but the author really makes an effort to explain as better as possible. This book is my bible for Physics. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Raul Ceja
