MEMORIES OF A THEORETICAL PHYSICIST: A Journey Across the Landscape of Strings, Black Holes, and the Multiverse
In this posthumously published account of his life and work, Polchinski describes successes and failures, triumphs and insecurities, and the sheer persistence that led to his greatest discoveries in string theory. Writing engagingly and accessibly, with the wry humor for which he was known, Polchinski gives theoretical physics a very human face. Photos, some in color.
