The Trouble with Physics : The Rise of String Theory, the Fall of a Science and What Comes Next Paperback
by Lee Smolin
"The Trouble with Physics" is a groundbreaking account of the state of modern physics: of how we got from Einstein and Relativity through quantum mechanics to the strange and bizarre predictions of string theory, full of unseen dimensions and multiple universes.
Lee Smolin not only provides a brilliant layman's overview of current research as we attempt to build a 'theory of everything', but also questions many of the assumptions that lie behind string theory.
In doing so, he describes some of the daring, outlandish ideas that will propel research in years to come.
