**A clear, plain-English guide to this complex scientific theory**

String theory is the hottest topic in physics right now, with books on the subject (pro and con) flying out of the stores. *String Theory For Dummies* offers an accessible introduction to this highly mathematical "theory of everything," which posits ten or more dimensions in an attempt to explain the basic nature of matter and energy. Written for both students and people interested in science, this guide explains concepts, discusses the string theory's hypotheses and predictions, and presents the math in an approachable manner. It features in-depth examples and an easy-to-understand style so that readers can understand this controversial, cutting-edge theory.
