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
