Description

In The Elegant Universe Brian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe which isnt quite what we think: one that consists of eleven dimensions, where all matter is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy. Greene uses everything from an amusement park ride to ants on a garden hose to explain the beautiful yet bizarre realities that modern physics is unveiling. Dazzling in its brilliance, unprecedented in its ability to both illuminate and entertain, The Elegant Universe is a tour de force of scientific writing - a delightful, lucid voyage through modern physics that brings us closer to understanding how the universe works.

    I have the hard copy of this book and it's a challenging but worthwhile read. Greene uses well thought out analogies to describe elements of relativity and quantum mechanics and it's a great success. The book then goes on to describe string theory and M-theory while still keeping it understandable! Definitely one of the best books I have and I'm delighted it's on the iBookstore now.
