Fragment:

"Universe on a T-Shirt tells the fascinating story of the search for the Holy Grail of physics." "Dan Falk places this intriguing story in its historical context, tracing the quest from ancient Greece to the breakthroughs of Newton, Maxwell, and Einstein, to the excitement over string theory and today's efforts to merge quantum theory with general relativity.

With as much emphasis on history as on science, Falk's accessible approach is ideal for readers who are intrigued by the advances in modern physics but still wonder what theoretical physicists are searching for, and why."--BOOK JACKET.
