“Beyond Einstein takes readers on an exciting excursion into the discoveries that have led scientists to the brightest new prospect in theoretical physics today -- superstring theory. What is superstring theory and why is it important? This revolutionary breakthrough may well be the fulfillment of Albert Einstein's lifelong dream of a Theory of Everything, uniting the laws of physics into a single description explaining all the known forces in the universe. Co-authored by one of the leading pioneers in superstrings, Michio Kaku, and completely revised and updated with the newest groundbreaking research, the book approaches scientific questions with the excitement of a detective story, offering a fascinating look at the new science that may make the impossible possible.
“Beyond Einstein explore beyond Einstein's attempt at a unified field theory, giving a brief history of all the discoveries made leading up to and including the current notion of string theory.
At times I found the personal asides about the various scientists a little distracting and unnecessary.”

“o.k., this book isn't just for everyone. You really have to love science (physics in particular). I mean really love it. This is pretty deep stuff and I found myself having to reread parts just to help tie things together. I already had previous knowledge of the superstring theory and grand unification, but this book helped my understanding a little more. And I'm always fascinated reading about Einstein's theory of relativity, so I enjoyed that part a lot.
Like I said though, if the stuff I talked about above sounds like greek to you, don't bother with this one. ”
