Brian Greene, a Columbia University physics professor and best-selling author of &NFi;The Elegant Universe&NFi_;, hosts this fascinating exploration of string theory, beginning with an overview of general physics concepts. Greene then moves on to a straightforward and visually stimulating explanation of the more recent string theory that unites relativity and quantum mechanics. A profile of Einstein and an explanation of his theory of relativity are included.
