String Theory For Dummies (Free PDF)

File Size: 6.25 Mb

In this book, I aim to give a clear understanding of the ever-evolving scientific subfield known as string theory. The media is abuzz with talk about this “theory of everything,” and when you’re done with this book you should know what they’re talking about (probably better than they do, most of the time).

In writing this book, I’ve attempted to serve several masters. First and foremost among them has been scientific accuracy, followed closely by entertainment value. Along the way, I’ve also done my best to use language that you can understand no matter your scientific background, and I’ve certainly tried to keep any mathematics to a minimum.
