Review

"'Wondering what all the hype over the Higgs boson is about? Look no further ... A hundred anecdotes bring the towering figures of particle physics and their key discoveries to life.'" (New Scientist)

""When the Higgs boson is discovered, it will be front page news, and this is the book that sets the stage. Ian Sample mixes cutting-edge science with behind-the-scenes stories to paint a compelling picture of one of modern science's greatest quests."" (Sean Carroll, author of From Eternity to Here)

"Fine reportage ... makes clear the sheer achievement of the scientists and engineers who have built the LHC, the most complex machine ever made in the service of pure science." (Graham Farmelo, Guardian)

"A compelling work of popular science, full of mind-boggling ideas and a real sense of the excitement of scientific discovery." (PD Smith Guardian)

"This is Nerd-heaven. Finally, Particle Physics gets a proper page-turner. A smart, breathless race through Higgs, his tiny, tiny particle and the big, big search to find it." (Dara O Briain)
