The Anthropic principle was one solution, but was rejected by many physicists who preferred a more elegant solution. String theory was then created, but allowed too many solutions.

Background[ edit ] At the time the book was written, it had been noted that the conditions of the Universe are very fine tuned, allowing life.

However, at the same time it is unknown why. The Anthropic principle was one solution, but was rejected by many physicists who preferred a more elegant solution. String theory was then created, but allowed too many solutions. Then, in the book, Susskind hypothesized that there are multiverses where there are occasional universes where life is indeed possible.

He calls this multiverse the "landscape". The earlier chapters deal with topics such as quantum electrodynamics , Feynman diagrams and quantum chromodynamics. Later on, the cosmological constant is introduced and problems with the amount of energy produced from virtual particles.

String theory is also introduced and the black hole war. The book emphasizes the theory of a "landscape" with many universes out there. Choice Review praised the way the "nuances" are presented and called the book "a stimulating, semi-popular book that presents an excellent, descriptive tutorial of modern physics and cosmology". The reviewer then stated that "persistent readers will finish this book understanding and caring about contemporary physics in ways both unexpected and gratifying".

The reviewer recommended the book to "science collections in academic and larger public libraries".

Leonard Susskind

Basically, he is telling us something that Hume told us, what, about years ago, that the universe seems beautifully designed to allow life to exist which leads some to propose the notion that it must therefore have been specifically and deliberately designed for us to live in because we do in fact live in it. The reality of course is that we arose in it; it caused us, and we are its effect. Hume lacked the theoretical physics to explain it mathematically, but he was right. He must be right because the great Leonard Susskind says s
