Not just strings
The first time I read this book I raced through it and I thought it was too critical of string theory. Later I read it again and I gained an appreciation for what the book was trying to accomplish. String theorists and LQG theorists are tackling the same fundamental problems from different perspectives, and each side needs to see that their work may need to incorporate findings from the other. Although Smolin comes from one side of the problem I felt his treatment was fair to both. I came away with a better understanding of some of the issues string theory has to overcome as well as hope that they will be. I also enjoyed some of the areas LQG is exploring that strings haven't gotten to yet.
