about this book

In this book the Nobel Prize-winning physicist describes the grand quest for a unifying theory of nature--one that can explain forces as different as the cohesion inside the atom and the gravitational tug between the sun and earth. Writing with dazzling elegance and clarity, Weinberg traces the steps that have led modern scientists from relativity and quantum mechanics to the notion of superstrings and the idea that our universe may coexist with others.
