Product description

Review

"[Carroll's] writing is accessible and peppered with cultural refernces... but don't be fooled Carroll isn't afraid to wade into topics that have befuddled even brand-name physicists."-"Wired"

Review

“In this superb book, Sean Carroll provides a fascinating and lucid look at the most mysterious and important particle in nature, and the experiment that revealed it. Anyone with an interest in physics should read this, and join him in examining the new worlds of physics to which this discovery may lead.”

(Leonard Mlodinow - Author of the international bestseller The Drunkard's Walk)

"Carroll tells the story of the particle that everyone has heard of but few of us actually understand. After you read this book―an enticing cocktail of personal anecdote, clever analogy, and a small dose of mind-bending theory―you will truly grasp why the Higgs boson has been sought after for so long by so many. Carroll is a believer in big science asking big questions and his beliefs are infectious and inspiring."

(Morgan Freeman - actor and executive producer of Through the Wormhole)

“The science is authoritative, yet bold and lively. The narrative is richly documented, yet full of human drama. Carroll’s saga pulls you aboard a modern voyage of discovery.”

(Frank Wilczek - Nobel Laureate in Physics)
