Suggestion for a book

  1. Oct 13, 2015 #1
    Guys,can you all suggest a nice and decent book on quantam physics for a 16 year old.I really am in need of it.I don't want any textbooks but a book like "the brief history of space time" but only focussing on quantam physics and mainly string theory would be absolutely great.thank you.

    Have you picked up Brian Greene's "The Elegant Universe"?

    Yea I have read it.

    Guth's 1997 "The Inflationary Universe" may be a little out of date, but, if I'd read it when I was 16, I might have a BSc instead of an arts degree.

    I really like Ghirardi's book on QM. It's not easy for laymen, but has great content.
