- Introduction to string theory 8 answers
Take A. Zee QFT Nut for example.
The book teaches fancy pants as well as "poor man's" proofs better then math texts. Argues the shortest (until proven kosher or not), the mathematical, the physical, the logical, and the motivation paths to everything it covers.
I have read other books. Zee books is the best teacher I ever encountered. Einstein is better but he only gives 20 page papers. Feynman is bi-polar. Either he explains everything, or he only throws computations. etc.
Normal people authors mostly give spaghetti of low information content bare minimum descriptions, and formulas straight from the original papers involved.
So is there a good teacher like A. Zee books about String Theory?
