Briane Green is an excellent writer. I haven't read "The Elegant Universe" but I recently picked up his "The Fabric of the Cosmos" at my local used book store and am about 2/3 of the way through it. I highly recommend the book for anyone interested in obscure things like "Bell's Theorem". Green's explanation of "spooky action at a distance" is simply the best I have ever read.
It is worth noting that you can buy a used copy of the hardcover version of this book for about $7 including shipping on Amazon. That's less that half the price you would pay for the paperback at the local Borders.
Both are great books, but I HIGHLY recommend The Elegant Universe.. probably one of the most well written and fascinating books on cosmology I have ever read. It’s the kinda book you want to go back over and re-read sections of. I give it 2 thumbs up.

Quantifying time is the key IMO. If that is not done, all physical theories fall apart, again just my opinion.

I haven’t read the Fabric of the Cosmos yet, but I loved the Elegant Universe. Excellent read.
