Apart from being just an explanation of General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, The Elegant Universe is an explanation of String Theory... the promising unifying framework that ties
together both of the other two theories and provides an elegant methodology for describing how quantum probability eventually shakes out to provide the unfolding of black holes, the warping of space-time and the
expansion of our universe.
With the same care and structure, Greene navigates the current day thinking on Superstrings and our quest for a TOE ... (Theory of Everything).
For those of you who enjoy being at the edge of human understanding... this book is a must!
