FOUNDATIONS OF PHYSICS
"Kaku's book, at 568 pages, is a comprehensive, self-contained text on string theory...[It] contains useful summaries of mathematical topics such as index theory, cohomology, and Kahler manifolds. This is a book for the really serious student of string theory; the dedicated reader who emerges after page 568 will be well versed in this fascinating area of theoretical physics."
