    The Elegant Universe, by Brian Green(e). can't remember if there's an e at the end of his name or not. There's two prominent string theorist's with last names Green, one is Greene the other is Green, I always get so confused. Anyway I think someone here already did a review on it.

    Thanks a lot, it's for a research project, so it's gonna be quite useful.

    Yes, Brian Greene's name has an "e" at the end. And I second climbhi's suggestion. I think it's probably the best introduction in existence.
