    I'm not familiar with it. Polchinski had written a textbook on String Theory, but to my knowledge it is not avaible online, you have to pay for it. Could you give me any more information?

    EDIT : You may want to try http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/9709062 though.

    The books are:
    String Theory Vol 1 (Polchinski J)
    String Theory Vol 2 (Polchinski J)

    There are two volumes. Some of the chapters:

    1. Type-I and Type-II syperstrings,
    2. The heterotic string
    3. Superstring interaction
    4. D-Branes

    These books are quite nice and understandable. A lot of math and physics, I think it more suitable for advanced reader, not a beginner.
    I have them as scanned e-books, but I would like to do an exchange, because if you really want them - buy them, I did :)
