The interface between Quantum Theory and Relativity, QM and time. The importance of following mathematical models through to their logical conclusion, even (especially?) if the seem absurd, as that can explain what is missing - in the theory or in our conception of how it applies.

Right. Moving onto to time now, and this is where it gets tricky. While I wouldn't say I understand QM (as Nils Bor said "If you think you understand Quantum Theory, you don't understand Quantum Theory...") I could grasp the concepts. Now that Greene has brought Time into things it really gets weird. The physics view makes my brain swell, despite the clarity with which it's explained. Entropy now, causality to come..

OK. Special Relativity; I've got that straight. Then on to General Relativity; hmm, I seem to be keeping on top of thing. Quantum Mechanics; oddly, it's still making sense!

An excellent introduction, clear and fascinating - but hints that upcoming chapters may be a bit mind-bending!
