Physicist Brian Greene's bestselling book comes to the small screen in this stimulating look at a complicated topic: the search for order in the universe. Is a revolutionary proposal--"string theory"--the answer scientists have been seeking for centuries? Greene tackles the mind-boggling complexity of the theory with vivid, clear images, and calmly points the way to the answer.

The string theory (particularly the math involved) is very hard to grasp even for physicists. However the production managed to go around the esoteric nature of the subject using intelligent examples, making it much easy to understand.
I would like to add that since the production is already eight years old and due the fast gathering of new discovers on this area of the research, it could be a good idea to add new DVDs to this serie actualizing the information (sort of collection)

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Relatively simple explanations

Great explanation. Too much reivew of previous parts when a new part is started. The three hours could have easily been done in two hours without loss of explanations.
