Summary

The main goal of string theory is an attempt in order to address in-depth questions about fundamental physics. It is said to be a broad subject that holds a wide range of concepts. Concept of black hole, cosmology, nuclear physics, matter physics, etc., are some of those concepts in which string theory is applied in order to solve a variety of questions. In the field of pure mathematics, many developments are carried out successfully by the application of string theory. String theory is said to be a theory for everything, since it contains descriptive concepts of gravity and particle physics. It literally covers all fundamental forces and concept of matter physics, which makes it a self-contained mathematical structure.

Not an intro book

I bought this book to get a basic, non scientist, high level understanding of string theory. In reality the book assume you are familiar with many scientific theories and terms. Not for a non scientic beginner

Little but a lot.

Intro books are short but dynomite comes in small packages but nitroglycerin in smaller packages.

Short & Simple Intro to String Theory

Written for the layman and armchair enthusiast, this is a very brief intro into String/M theory. Produced in 2016, it also includes a thread or two about the latest updates to the theory, which was my favorite part.

My main critiques are that it is too short, and too simple, at least for those who find this field fascinating enough to devour anything quantum or cosmology-related. If it's your very first foray into the field, however, this would be the perfect introduction.

Can read this in the span of a short workout.
