Beyond Einstein: The Cosmic Quest for the Theory of the Universe
"Beyond Einstein" takes readers on an exciting excursion into thediscoveries that have led scientists to the brightest new prospect intheoretical physics today -- superstring theory. What is superstring theory andwhy is it important? This revolutionary breakthrough may well be thefulfillment of Albert Einstein's lifelong dream of a Theory of Everything, uniting the laws of physics into a single description explaining all the knownforces in the universe. Co-authored by one of the leading pioneers insuperstrings, Michio Kaku, and completely revised and updated with the newestgroundbreaking research, the book approaches scientific questions with theexcitement of a detective story, offering a fascinating look at the new sciencethat may make the impossible possible.
"The man knows how to make science interesting".
"Kaku's exploration of the principles of superstring theory are lucid, livelyand fullÖ as thought-provoking as Stephen Hawking".
"With his lucid and wry style [he has a] knack for bringing the most etherealideas down to earth".
"His scientific view is out of this world".
