I was recently reading up on theoretical physics when I came across M-theory. I was amazed by this theory so I decided to do more research on it. I worked the mathematics out for my self and it seems to work out. I would like to know how you feel about M-theory. Is it a good theory or does it have some problems?

Like all string theories, it cannot be verified (or falsified) by experiments. So it is a highly speculative effort, but physics needs experiments.

More info on M-theory.

For more info on String Theory watch the Elegant Universe. You may preview it here first.

I personally think that M-theory has a lot of potential but there are some aspects that need to be worked on further.
