If you're looking for something to daydream about this will do it. And no, not an easy read but if you reread each paragraph, well, there you go.

This book was a challenge for me because I don't have an extensive background in physics or mathematics. Despite my intellectual shortcomings,
Alexander effectively created a work that is largely understandable: part biography and part particle physics treatise.
My favorite "a-ha" moment was the correlation between the structure of the universe, the structure of Earth, humans, and ultimately, music.
We are products of our environment, so it is no wonder that music possesses the same patterns seen in string theory. Coupled with his personal anecdotes on
his musically-enriched childhood and adolescence, I consider this book to be required reading for those who are looking for an informal introduction to the beauty of physics.
