The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality by Brian Greene
In The Fabric of the Cosmos, physicist Brian Greene tries to explain theoretical physics to lay people. He tackles the subjects of relativity, quantum mechanics, and string theory, but presents them in a manner that makes them more understandable to those of us who don't live and breathe these topics every day. While we may think of our world with absolute scientific laws and three-dimensions, Brian Greene gently leads us through a universe of perhaps 11 dimensions and an arena where vastly distant objects can bridge their spatial separation to instantaneously coordinate their behavior or even undergo teleportation. The Fabric of the Cosmos has received mostly positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "This is one popular-science book that won't be left on the coffee table half read."
