5.0 von 5 Sternen Still worth the effort, 31. März 2000
While the subject of string theory has undergone considerable and radical change since publication of this text and since Polchinski's recent texts takes some of the steam out of this title, overall it remains a relevant part of the literature for a number of reasons. First, vol I clearly serves a vital role as a secondary source to both of Polchinski's text and vice versa: Polchinski's vol's I&II update Green / Schwarz / Witten's (GSW) vol I. Whereas Polichinski's vol I focuses exclusively on the bosonic strings GSW vol I includes both supersymmetric & bosonic string theory. A reader can then go along way on joining vol I of Polchinski and vol I of GSW.
But probably the greatest reason to purchase this title is the insight into string theory that is offered by these particular authors --- individuals who have each served as principle architects of string theory since its inception and through its many revolutions.
In general, the prose is congenial as is the level of sophistication in physical and mathematical argument. The mathematical apparatus of string theory can become very heavy very quickly and these authors orient the reader in that difficult terrain in a truly adroit fashion.
