'Compulsively readable...Green threatens to do for string theory what Stephen Hawking did for holes' New York Times

In this international bestseller, Columbia University professor Brian Greene provides, in layman’s terms, a comprehensive demystification of string theory. Greene, one of the world's leading string theorists, peels away layers of the unknown, through introducing concepts from quantum mechanics to general relativity, to reveal a universe that consists of eleven dimensions. Accessible and enlightening, Greene's inimitable blend of expert scientific insight and literary ingenuity makes The Elegant Universe an exhilarating read that brings us closer to understanding how our magnificent universe works.

Mr.

Brian, you cannot possibly be a true scientist, nowhere in the entire book did I see a mention of the La Grange point
. You did not explain the attraction and repulsion of the orbiting bodies at all.
