"Beyond Einstein" takes readers on an exciting excursion into thediscoveries that have led scientists to the brightest new prospect intheoretical physics today -- superstring theory. What is superstring theory andwhy is it important? This revolutionary breakthrough may well be thefulfillment of Albert Einstein's lifelong dream of a Theory of Everything, uniting the laws of physics into a single description explaining all the knownforces in the universe. Co-authored by one of the leading pioneers insuperstrings, Michio Kaku, and completely revised and updated with the newestgroundbreaking research, the book approaches scientific questions with theexcitement of a detective story, offering a fascinating look at the new sciencethat may make the impossible possible."The man knows how to make science interesting". -- "Philadelphia Inquirer" "Kaku's exploration of the principles of superstring theory are lucid, livelyand fullÖ as thought-provoking as Stephen Hawking". -- "Kirkus Reviews" "With his lucid and wry style [he has a] knack for bringing the most etherealideas down to earth". -- "The Wall Street Journal" "His scientific view is out of this world". -- "Los Angeles Times"
