"It would be hard to imagine a better guide to this difficult subject." --Scientific American
In Three Roads to Quantum Gravity, Lee Smolin provides an accessible overview of the attempts to build a final "theory of everything." He explains in simple terms what scientists are talking about when they say the world is made from exotic entities such as loops, strings, and black holes and tells the fascinating stories behind these discoveries: the rivalries, epiphanies, and intrigues he witnessed firsthand.

"Provocative, original, and unsettling." --New York Review of Books

Excellent book for the layperson wanting to learn more about quantum gravity. This books covers Superstring - "M" Theory, Blackhole Thermodynamics, and Loop Quantum Gravity which he tries to unify these into a single theory using the Holographic Principle. Certainly mind-bending.
