Summary and Info
After having read "the Cosmic Landscape" by dr. Susskind I very quickly found out that this was quite a different kind of book. It is a book by an eminent scientist for other advanced scientists, which I am not, at least not in this particular branch of physics. Still, by skipping formulas I could not understand because I did not even know the definitions used, I still, by concentrating on the text for some parts, got at least an inkling of what the book was all about. In that respect it was not a total failure to me, as it made me clear what the present scientific debate in this field is all about. Still this book is definitely not for laymen.
