This is a very helpful book, I am studying A-level physics and I have found it very useful for study and revision purposes as well as for just researching almost anything that a person could want to know about particle physics. If you are not studying higher level physics then you may find many parts of the book rather challenging and difficult to understand fully, but for a source of information on particle physics, I have not read a better book. If you are studying for A-level physics, or just wish to improve your knowledge and understanding of particle physics, this book is a necessity.
This is a great book with excellent diagrams and mathematical explanations. Is is amazingly clear for what is perceived as a difficult area of science. I actually found it hard to put down as it is written in a fascinating way. Great work Bishop - as good as the Astrophysics one which could not be better!!!
This book, and the partner title on Astrophysics are the best non-examination board books I have found. Simple, yet detailed narrative style, sensible chaptering and plenty of background to help students build an in-depth picture of the subject. I have recommended them to all my A Level students.
