This exceptional book is very well written, & gives a careful & convincing account. So trust yourself, curl up with a good dictionary & a notepad, read, & hopefully you may be rewarded (as I was) with some real understanding of the journey to QCD & the Standard Model, as well as the value of the alternative ideas & explorations on the way. Also, you will appreciate the value of high-quality academic work in providing thorough explanation - true of both QCD & this volume. The notepad, by the way, is to remind you of all the bits of theory you should review elsewhere after each chapter (or each section, if your mind works like mine).
