Little Strings

String theory may explain the fundamental properties of the universe. But, who can explain string theory? On this program, Steven Gubser discussed the little book of strings.

Where’s the cosmic violin? 😉




  1. Steven did a great job of describing some of the recent developments regarding string theory. It has been a while since I delved into this and since it is available for Kindle I have added to my list.

    Not since “A Brief History of Time”, “In Search of Schrodinger’s Cat”, and “The Elegant Universe”, have I found a book that truly kindled the theoretical interest I have been seeking.

    Frank and Charles, keep up the great work you guys do. You are my companions on my afternoon dog walks.
