comment String Theory: What to do?
@AranKomatsuzaki: the books you mention, and many others are less mathematical and more "phenomenological/experimental". Before or along with learning QFT, you may get the basics of real particle physics with Griffiths' "Introduction to Elementary Particles" and then something like Halzen-Martin "Quarks & Leptos". The more you know the better, but few "pure physics" books are easy to digest by some mathematicians as they tend to be too prosaic or not rigorous enough (e.g. more heuristics than formalism). Anyway, the other books you mention are only needed for a particle physicist I think.

comment String Theory: What to do?
@Did the link to Woit's blog has been added to the first paragraph of my answer, as you suggested and we discussed. I had been uninterested in the "string theory" topic for long, but recently I have found Woit's blog as a very useful reference to keep updated.
