Or read it right here on PF:
Right you are! I first read it on PF, in fact. But the indentation
showing which blocks were direct quotes from hawking showed
up clearly in the original at Baez website so I decided to link to that. It is a
real convenience, I must say to have SPR readily available at PF!
BTW a piece that came out recently and should be of special interest to String Theory watchers was a memoir
by Sasha Polyakov
Confinement and Liberation
A. M. Polyakov
"This is a review of topics which haunted me for the last 40 years, starting with spontaneous symmetry breaking and ending with gauge/string/space-time correspondence. While the first part of this article is mostly historical, the second contains some comments, opinions and conjectures which are new. This work is prepared for the volume ' Fifty Years of the Yang- Mills Theory' "
I have been going through Polyakov's memoir, pointed to it by Peter Woit's link, and I am deeply impressed with the man and his work. That book "Fifty Years of Yang-Mills Theory" is going to be a must-buy. Imagine having the collected technical reminiscences of the Argonauts!
