This is a really nice introductory book about Superstring Theory. There are still puzzles in the world of physics that string theorists hope to solve. Unfortunately, they aren’t there yet, so it’s hard to know if the theory is a complete waste of time or not. The book however, is not because it’s about a lot more than just the theory. It’s also about the people that have worked over the years trying to understand our universe to the finest detail.

I’ve also read Greene’s previous book The Elegant Universe which is equally good. If you have a chance to catch the PBS version, I highly recommend it. There did seem to be a lot of overlap between the two books, but there is enough difference between them to make them both worth while.
