In a rare blend of scientific insight and writing as elegant as the theories it explains, Brian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away the layers of mystery surrounding string theory to reveal a universe 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.

Develops one fresh new 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" New York Times Book Review "Utterly absorbing...a brilliant achievement. An accessible, equationless account of strings, explaining why they are generating so much excitement among their devotees. Greene's achievement is to make us feel at home in the chillingly abstract world of strings and to convince us that we must take it seriously" Sunday Telegraph "As rewarding as it gets... A thrilling ride through a lovely landscape... A compelling human saga" Los Angeles Times Book Review "Compulsively readable...Green threatens to do for string theory what Stephen Hawking did for holes" New York "[A] tour-de-force of science writing...peels away layers of detail and reveals the stunning essence of cutting-edge physics" -- Shing-Tung Yau, Harvard University; Fields Medalist, winner of the National Medal of Science
