Hello all, I am currently trying in vain to find a book that i do not know the name of. I heard it mentioned somewhere that I can not recall so now am lost. Basically it is a book with (I think 50) interesting theories about everything. Like string theory parallel universes etc. Has any one heard of such a book or can suggest something similar?

A few weeks ago I bought Guy Harrison's 50 popular beliefs people think are true, any chance you mean that?

Hey ryan thanks for the reply, i just looked that up and dont think its the book Im after, Its not really a critical analysis of the theories just some of the more out there and not so out there theories about the universe. Some with scientific reasoning behind them.
