"pure potboiler. . .well-plotted, well-written"
"a warning: do not begin this book less than several hours before a dinner or other social engagement. You will probably not be able to stop reading."
"Readers should not get intimidated. The science comes in easily digestible bites mixed in with international espionage, strip clubs, and skin heads."
"It's smart, it's fun and the pages literally just fly by"
"Tremendous fun...Alpert is definitely a writer to watch."
"Wow! Einstein would have loved this book. It's a great thriller, it has a sure feel for politics, and the science is both fun and solid. He always dreamed that he would discover a unified theory that explained all of nature's forces. Now this book makes the quest come alive."
"I have always been fascinated by the potential of science, the point where physics appears to defy its own laws and behave in uncertain ways. Thanks to this wonderful novel, I have reunited with an old passion and enjoyed a journey full of unexpected twists and drama."
"Alpert has a rare gift for combining cutting edge science with an unrelenting pace and edge-of-the-seat action. An impressive debut."
"An ingenious twist on Einstein's genius."
"Final Theory is a book that takes big science - and cosmology is as big as it gets - and weaves a populist read around it."
