Since the MathReview explains things quite well, and people may not have easy access, here are some selected parts of office right nowthe review:
A. Grothendieck posed the following problem ... if $X$ and $Y$ are Banach spaces such that $X\check\otimes Y$ and $X\hat\otimes Y$ coincide, will add details later)then is one of them necessarily finite-dimensional? Grothendieck conjectured a positive answer [Bol. Soc. Mat. Sao Paulo 8 (1953), 1--79; MR0094682 (20 #1194) ]. The author solves this problem in the negative by giving an example of a separable infinite-dimensional Banach space $X$ such that $X\check\otimes X= X\hat\otimes X$.
... any (separable) Banach space $E$ of cotype 2 can be imbedded isometrically into a (separable) Banach space $X$ such that (a) $X$ and $X^*$ are both of cotype 2 and they "verify Grothendieck's theorem'' (every operator into a Hilbert space is absolutely summing), and (b) $X\check\otimes X=X\hat\otimes X$.
... Any infinite-dimensional space $X$ satisfying (a) cannot be isomorphic to a Hilbert space, although $X$ and
$X^*$ are of cotype 2...
... the natural map $X^* \hat\otimes X\rightarrow X^*\check \otimes X$ is not injective. However, it is shown that for any Banach space $X$ satisfying (a) this map is surjective. In other words: every operator in $X$ which is a uniform limit of finite-rank operators is nuclear.
