I have to admit I found it in a rather old fashioned way - paper version of the New Scientist a few years ago. Here is a link to the accompanying interview with 't Hooft (sadly only for those who happen to be subscribers to New Scientist): http://space.newscientist.com/article/mg18725151.900

By the way, if you liked this material, you might also be interested in the MIT courses, also here in this forum https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=150759 - now THAT is some hot stuff !

Yay! I love this page!

I'm fifteen and I've been self-studying physics for a couple of years now. This page helped me know where to start, what to cover and where to go; I'm glad others can benefit from it, too!
