5.0 out of 5 stars thrilling insight into microphysics, 21 Sep 2005
By 
Dr. M. Tranter "counterforce" (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Image and Logic: Material Culture of Microphysics (Paperback)
This is an excellent book. It is accessible to a general reader with an interest in the "machines" with which some of the most important breakthroughs of modern physics were made. Gallison uses some fascinating metaphors, for instance the idea of a pidgin or trading language allowing communication between researchers in different fields (ie those who count events and those who create images of them).
