What is the best review article, published in a peer-reviewed journal, introducing string theory?
My favored books areYou're probably better off using the standard books like Polchinski, Becker Becker Schwarz, Zwiebach, Green Green Witten.
I haven't looked at this Kaku book, but I don't like his quantum field theory book. Have you looked at the book by Becker, Becker, and Schwarz?My favored books are
Zwiebach for a beginner and
M. Kaku, Introduction to Superstrings and M-theory, for an advanced reader
And I don't like Polchinski's book. :uhh:
Well, I do. That probably means that you wouldn't like his string book either.I haven't looked at this Kaku book, but I don't like his quantum field theory book.
Yes. In my opinion, the quality of the book significantly varies from chapter to chapter (which probably means that different chapters were written dominantly by different authors).Have you looked at the book by Becker, Becker, and Schwarz?
