### Becker Schwarz Becker

Becker Schwarz Becker. That's not a description of a tennis duel in Germany but a rumor about a possible new string theory textbook that is being prepared. Anyone knows more? This rumor came from the blog of CapitalistImperialistPig.

Update (2006): I have seen portions of the book and I can recommend you the book wholeheartedly as a modern update of Green-Schwarz-Witten. There's a lot about black hole precision entropy etc. The book also has a nice cover:

When I mentioned Germany: It turned out that the mysterious Piano Man is German, too. Also, some new rumors indicate that this citizen of Bavaria can't really play the piano and he is not ill. These developments make the British media look like the Radio Yerevan.
