Editorial Reviews


A Unified Grand Tour of Theoretical Physics has a charming first chapter that compares the overview of theoretical physics offered in the following chapters to the Grand Tour of the continent taken by young Englishmen in the 18th century … If a person were to work through the entire book, he or she would gain an understanding of relativity, quantum theory, spacetime, tensors, gauge theories, field theory, and statistical mechanics. New to the second edition is material on string theory and supersymetry.
-E-STREAMS, Vol. 5, No. 9

Written for advanced undergraduates, this book provides an accessible introduction to the major theories about spacetime geometry, general relativity, gravitation, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, relativistic wave equations, fundamental particles and their interactions, statistical mechanics, phase transitions, solutions, the early universe, super-symmetry and string theory.
-Sci-Tech Book News

Within a single volume, this book meets a genuine need. It provides appropriate material to enable many of us to broaden our knowledge into areas that are only loosely related to our own specialties. I can certainly recommend it, and I am sure I will regularly use it personally. The author should be congratulated on generally meeting the aims he set out to achieve … it is likely to prove to be an extremely helpful resource.
-Classical and Quantum Gravity, Vol. 19

It is not a mere popularization of the edifices but a serious introduction to them.
-Kailish Kumar, Australian National University, The Physicist, Vol. 39

Praise for the previous edition:
The book is laced with penetrating little insights delivered with a wry wit which makes for an entertaing read.
-Times Higher Educational Supplement

… it is perfect for an ambitious graduate student, an adventurous scientist in another field, or even an aging physics professor who has devoted himself to a specialty and will relish an excursion into unfamiliar territory.
-Physics Today

…will be uniquely valuable in assisting and encouraging our graduate students to see and exploit the fertile connections and analogies between different subdisciplines, so that we all become better theoretical physicists.
