"Final Theory is a stupendous read! Real characters, real science, a deliciously explosive premise, and a breakneck plot combine to make this one of the finest science-based thrillers to appear in a long time. Final Theory rules.

—Walter Isaacson, New York Times bestselling author of Einstein: His Life and Universe
