    I'm looking to read up on M-theory and I was wondering about any good books you know of. Any Science books in general actually. Any help would be appreciated.

    I would be very very leery of most popular books on the subject. M theory is far less mature that what is generally represented in books for a general audience.

    This is an introductory but very serious text. It is not for the faint of heart.

    String Theory and M Theory: A Modern Introduction -- Becker, Becker and Schwarz

    This the foundational x-rated paper from the master:
    http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/hep-th/pdf/9503/9503124v2.pdf

    Here are some popular articles and web sites that I think are honest:
