another good book that makes science accessible for the general public. I was more impressed with the previous book (the elegant universe) as some "ommissions" were made in this one, that made some chapters harder to follow without the background. Especially in the chapters on inflationary theory a few short-circuits are taken (whatever happened to supercooling and false vacuum..?). Fortunately I read some A. Guth before (the inflationary universe - a recommendation!!). Once into string theory, we clearly notice the "home" of Brian Greene and the explanations are very smooth again. Altogether certainly a very interesting read.
