The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking

I finished The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking while I was on vacation.
It is an interesting history of quantum physics and the the concepts behind M-theory the current fore runner for the Grand Unifying Theory. It is insightful and gives the reader a layman's understanding of modern day physics, multiverse theory and in the end it points out that new evidence suggest that a Grand Unifying Theory may be unrealistic.

I would recommend it to those who are curious about the subject but do not have a background in quantum physics. If you aren't curious go read something else.
