Introduces the superstring theory that attempts to unite general relativity and quantum mechanics.
"Greene lays out the theory so clearly and persuasively that you almost come to believe it, and to hope that someday a way will be found to establish whether it is anything more than wishful mathematics....Like all popular science writers, Greene is burdened with the task of having to start from scratch, explaining ideas about relativity and quantum mechanics that were current in the 30's....But with Greene this familiar ground is well worth retreading. Rather than recycling the tired old set pieces science writers too often fall back on, he develops one fresh insight after another....In the great tradition of physicists writing for the masses, THE ELEGANT UNIVERSE sets a standard that will be hard to beat."
George Johnson, New York Times Book Review, 02/21/1999Review:
"THE ELEGANT UNIVERSE is an ambitious, patient, and frequently personal attempt to bring both the beauty and substance of string theory down to Earth for the general public....Even if string theory turns out to be wrong, the ideas it's spun forth thus far are sure to be woven into the ongoing revolution in physics."
