Beyond Einstein takes readers on an exciting excursion into the discoveries that have led scientists to the brightest new prospect in theoretical physics today -- superstring theory. What is superstring theory and why is it important? This revolutionary breakthrough may well be the
fulfillment of  Albert Einstein's lifelong dream of a Theory of Everything, uniting the laws of physics into a single description explaining all the known forces in the universe. Co-authored by one of the leading pioneers in superstrings, Michio Kaku, the book approaches scientific questions with the excitement of a detective story, offering a fascinating look at the new science that may make the impossible possible.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty damn good... but i found this book by Kaku to be extremely interesting and hard to put down. he did a wonderful job of outlining the strengths and implications of the superstring theory. unfortunately the book does not spend much time on the theory itself. i would have enjoyed a more indepth examination of the foundation of superstrings and the actual physics it is constructed with. this was the first book i had read on supestrings and i am now left with a craving to learn more about the theory itself, which was not possible from Kaku's book. with more text on the theory itself and less on the history of superstring devlopment this book would have goten a 5.
