Reviews - What do our customers think?
I do not like "..Idiot's Guide..."  Oct 4, 2008
..as a part of a title. Idiots do not read such books. I may say, you will like this easy to follow review of relativity, QM, the Standard Model, the possibility of time travel, and more. Then explore alternatives to string theory. All this conveyed in everyday, even breezy, language. The next few years will be critical for string theory. LHC will begin to smash particles into bits to see what they are made of and give new types a chance to form. But finishing the job will probably require new conceptual input , as author indicates. Good quick read ..from micro to large scale cosmology.
 
Not for complete idiots  Sep 24, 2008
Witty, clear, interesting and a great addition to your collection, especially if you're interested in knowing more about physics, without having to learn equations and understand complex principles.

The "Brief history of time" of string theory.
 
wide ranging  Aug 25, 2008
A chunk of the book covers relativity.
Quantum mechanics is presented with its incompatibilities.
With these formalities over with, string theory is discussed.

There are some difficulties here.
Profound conclusions are presented without much background.
The conflicting view points get tiresome.
There is not much of a climax at the end.
But these problems are inherent to the subject matter.

The digressions and historical bits are always interesting.
The endless analogies to everyday life are better than you would expect.
There is a joy about the audacity of the subject which comes through.
 
inportant yet still fun  Aug 12, 2008
how could i resist? my education/degrees are in biophysics, so there's a lot i've missed out on. fascinating to read and learn and not over the top in levels of difficulty.
take a chance!
 
Still An Idiot  Aug 4, 2008
I am still basically an idiot on this subject, but now with a little enlightenment. I have been out of school for some30++ years and this
stuff is a bit out there for me. But, it is written clearly and I am
very happy with the read.
