Good illustrations of String and supersymmetry theory?

  • Thread starter Robert100

I have Brian Greene's "The Elegant Universe", and am thinking about getting Lisa Randall's "Warped Passages" Yet I'd appreciate any suggestions on books that contain a much larger number of illustrations and graphic analogies.

Scientific American often has good articles on M-theory, branes and string theory, with terrific illustrations. Are there books with a healthy amount of colorful and useful graphic visualizations?

It would be a plus if said books had similar visuals for Supersymmetry or any other hypotheses about how to go beyond the standard model.

Also, any thoughts on "The Cosmic Landscape : String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design" by Leonard Susskin?

Thanks for your suggestions,
