    The Elegant Universe

    I have been reading this book and it's pretty damn good. It's about the string theory and was written by Brian Greene.

    Has anyone else read this book? What's your opinion on the string theory?

    I have, it's an excellent book. Very well written.

    >What's your opinion on the string theory?
    I believe string theory is one step closer to the truth.

    I want to read it too, you guys should send me a copy. Seriously though, I want to read it.

    Have either of you heard about a book called something like "The Fabric of the Universe" or something like that???

    I'm sure this is beyond the scope of the board, but what is string theory?

    What sites would you recommend on it?
