Pretty good, but mostly a history of the subject and a brief overview. It doesn't get interesting until about 3/4ths of the way through when it got a bit deeper into string and loop theory. This book is best for high school students looking for an introduction to the topic.

A great attempt to make topics approachable that are, by their very nature, not approachable.

Good, informative. Sometimes felt like it was a series of articles rather than a whole book.
