Greene, a professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University and a specialist in quantum field theory, expounds on string theory, the elusive "key to everything" that ties together large-scale physics with the physics of the small. Using insightful analogies and metaphors, the author explains complicated theories in a refreshingly accessible way. A New York Times Notable Book for 1999.
