Like all books of Michio Kaku, the book is written nicely and the topics included are indeed modern and up to date. In order to understand it, it is recommended that one has done a course on superstring theory, preferably on infinite-dimensional Lie algebras and supersymmetry too, and that one has read some material on conformal field theory (good books are by di Francesco et al. and Ketov). Kaku goes very quickly through the more fundamental subjects before going into more difficult matter, suc ...more
