About this book

In the last fifteen years, theoretical physicists and cosmologists have introduced new ideas, reaching for the new fundamental theory that will unify all our knowledge of the natural world. This book is a controversial and honest account of what we really know about nature and what is the real status of the new ideas proposed in the last quarter century.

The Trouble with Physics includes intimate portraits of many of the leading figures in string theory, quantum gravity and cosmology.

&i;'The Trouble with Physics offers an engaging take on the state of fundamental theoretical physics, mercifully free of the thumbnail character sketches that dog much popular science, and is all the more readable for its unashamedly partisan nature'.&o;
- Richard Lea, TLS February 2008.
