'Nicholas Mee acts as the trigger as he selects the tales to tell of those whose work has helped reveal the structure of matter and the laws of nature, culminating in the present hunt for the Higgs particle. The result is an intellectual journey that ends at the LHC near Geneva but begins with the Big Bang 13.75 billion years ago (...) This book is far broader and more accessible than its title may suggest.'

'... it provides a well-written and clearly explained overview of the way in which our understanding of the fundamental forces in nature has developed over the last two thousand years (...) It might be particularly suitable as preliminary reading for those intending to study Physics at university.' --bookwitch.wordpress.com, 11 March 2012
