I had the opportunity to attend a lecture by the author on campus. Being interested in String Theory (if not quite up on all the nuances of the field) this was an interesting adjunct.

Hard call, 3 stars or 4. This is maybe too brief a review/introduction, but then again, it is made (more or less) to be read/worked through in conjunction with the videos of the source lectures. And, then again, it is what the box says: the theoretical minimum.

Ma allora che fine fa, l'informazione, quando precipita in un buco nero?
Leonard Susskind è una vecchia volpe della fisica, così in gamba che riesce a dare a questo rigorosissimo saggio il ritmo di un romanzo d'avventura. Battaglie, colpi di scena, grandissime menti che si confrontano. Il valore di questo libro, oltre che nelle teorie che espone (per inciso qui si parla del paradigma olografico), sta nell'immagine del mondo della fisica e dei fisici che restituisce.
Se qualcuno volesse avvicinarsi dalla narrativa alla saggistica scientifica, non esiterei a consigliargli questo libro.… (mais)

Seemed interesting, but gave it up due to not actually caring very much. Quickly got past my knowledge. Reading an ebook copy of it didn't help though. I'd probably recommend it if you're keen!
