As much as I like to think I follow modern physicist and have a lay-man's understanding of the theories governing how we view our universe, one would think there's not much that I could learn from a this book.
One would be very, very wrong. This book covers the basics of physics, from Newton, to Einstein, to modern theories. Brian Greene does an excellent job of explaining what are often very counter-intuitive theories in a way that's easy to grasp and understand.
Even if you feel you have a good idea of what Quantum Mechanics is, I highly recommend this book. Not only will it serve as a good refresher, but it furthers your knowledge with the latest thinking on just how it is that our universe works.
