A new book by Lawrence Krauss is scheduled to appear in bookstores tomorrow. Has anybody here seen an advanced copy? Peter Woit has a review of the book http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/wordpress/?p=281 One of the perks of having a popular blog website seems to be that publishers send you reviewer copies of new books, before they hit the stores and go on amazon. Here is the amazon page https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0670033952/104-1323326-1583901 It has a bunch of shorter reviews and the usual amazon info. Krauss has written a number of general audience physics and cosmology books, including for instance a popular one called The Physics of Star Trek This new one has the intriguing title: HIDING IN THE MIRROR: The Mysterious Allure of Extra Dimensions, from Plato to String Theory and Beyond Part of the idea of the book is to explore mankind's age-old fascination with the notion of unseen extra dimensions.
