Reviews

"George Musser presents the multidimensional world of string theory in this fantastic primer on all things physics, including the problem of time, the holographic principle, and alternatives to strings. The book is not only for beginners, but its lucid explanations ensure that even an idiot will emerge with an ear for the strange music of reality."

-- "New Scientist"

"[A] thoroughly worthwhile read, doing as good a job as you could hope for in reducing the Gordian complexity of string theory into something that intelligent readers feel that they understand."

-- "Physics Education"

"An excellent popular account of string theory...this book is to be welcomed, not only for explaining the physics in an easily assimilated way, but also for articulating why superstrings and the rest of fundamental physics matter at all...Best of all, Musser...tackles the controversial aspects of string theory, which have been the subject of much journalistic nonsense lately, and gets it all just about right."
