An unsolicited opinion : “If you have ever wanted an explicit answer to the question, ‘What, exactly, is a Calabi-Yau manifold?’, this is the book you are looking for. Clear, far-ranging and full of brilliant insight, it is also a stylistic masterpiece, which is rare among math and physics books.” (rick1138, 11-04-2003, 11:39 PM; from www.physicsforums.com archive).

Adapted from the Publisher’s web-site: Uniting particle physics and quantum field theory with gravity and general relativity, this textbook of fundamental and theoretical physics describes the quest to consolidate the basic building blocks of nature. Designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students it provides a conceptually unified and logically consistent understanding of all matter at the fundamental level through worked examples, detailed derivations, as well as historical, philosophical and methodological commentary.
