Brian Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away layers of mystery to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions, where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself, and all matter--from the smallest quarks to the most gargantuan supernovas--is generated by the vibrations of microscopically tiny loops of energy. The Elegant Universe makes some of the most sophisticated concepts ever contemplated accessible and thoroughly entertaining, bringing us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works.
"Sets a standard that will be hard to beat." -- George Johnson - The New York Times Book Review "Compulsively readable. . . . Greene threatens to do for string theory what Stephen Hawking did for black holes." -- New York "As rewarding as it gets . . . a thrilling ride through a lovely landscape." -- Los Angeles Times
