Product description

Review

There are many books on the market that describe the Higgs boson discovery. This book's uniqueness is its author's uncompromising drive to question both theory and experiment. It might frustrate you. You might love it. (Tara Shears, Times Higher Education)

Two things make this book stand out. One is the authorâs personal involvement in the field over a long period, and the other is that he is brave enough not to take the simplistic stance that weâve found the Higgs and itâs all over, but rather to point out that things are a lot more complicated than the press releases from CERN would suggest. (Brian Clegg, Popular Science)
