Speaking of litterature and as mentioned above Brian Greene’s book “The Elegant Universe” is a must read, and if that is not enough for you we have included a whole list of other books on the topic for your reading enjoyment.

The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory is a book by Brian Greene published in 1999, which introduces string and superstring theory, and provides a comprehensive though non-technical assessment of the theory and some of its shortcomings. In 2000, it won the Royal Society Prize for Science Books and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize Nonfiction. A new edition was released in 2003, with an updated preface.
