Calling it a cover-up would be far too dramatic.
The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene
What a beginning?! Especially for a long, non-fiction book about science. My physics teacher, five years ago in high school, had us watch a NOVA documentary about this theory that is gaining more and more popularity to be a “theory of everything”, string theory. The whole title of the book is The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory. Now I don’t pretend that I am anything of a physics-whiz 🙂 I did pass the class, but Nick had to help me a lot, which made me mad because he tried teaching me calculus ways to do physics which the physics teacher wasn’t using! So confusing… Anyway, this book is supposed to be written for average people, like me, so it shouldn’t be too confusing. And, if it is, I don’t HAVE to read it. I just want to try 😀 The theory is really interesting, so I’d like to read more about it. I’ll let ya know, but this might be a book I give up if I can’t understand it
