I graduated as an engineer in Chemistry and luckily had a bit of quantum chemistry. Therefore, I could more or less follow the part on Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory. The preceding chapters on relativity were sort of easy going. Once the part on string theory started (at about 25% of the book) things rapidly become more complicated with descriptions of multidimensional geometries and behaviours of these dimensions. Apparently the strings moving and oscillating inside these dimensions are restricted in their motion due to the geometry while its motion(s) determine mass, electric charge and other physical characteristics. As string theory is as yet purely theoretical, it is very very difficult to follow for non-experts like myself and close to impossible to comprehend the practical implications. Still, quite interesting to get an idea of what contemporary theoretical physicists are working on
