A carefully crafted book. Excellent for the amateur physicist,
This review is from: The Particle at the End of the Universe: The Hunt For The Higgs And The Discovery Of A New World (Paperback)
I have to say it is by far the best non mathematical text on particle physics that I have read. It really goes to lengths to try to explain the processes and the history in the best possible way. By the way the particle in the title is the Higgs Boson and the book was written after its discovery. This is the first book that really goes into its importance and relevance which I had struggled to find in other sources. Personally I appreciate the extra stories about the LHC, physicists and earlier events.
