DescriptionBrian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away layers of mystery to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions, where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy. The Elegant Universe makes some of the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated accessible and thoroughly entertaining, bringing us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works."

Reviews for The Elegant Universe
String Theory explained beautifully
I was searching for books on superstring theory, but they all seem either too complex (too much math and formalism and few down-to-earth physics) or seem too vague (sometimes without really talking about superstring theory). Until I found this book.
Brian Greene was able, in a single and relatively short book, explain the basic ideas of Superstring Theory and its context in the current Particle Physics and Cosmology theories.
Without using any math, Greene makes you feel almost an expert on Superstring Theory. A must-have. by Rui Antunes
