Good but needs an updated version.

This is a good book, however, I do feel it needs a second edition. It has obviously been updated circa 2012, but I suspect that this has been done by adding in a paragraphs and sections rather than some more detailed re-writing. For instance, near the beginning it states that nobody knows if neutrinos have mass. Toward the end of the book it states that we have discovered that they do. Frank Close is a good writer and I hope that OUP pay him to write a fully revised text. I think many A level students would find this book useful; the sections on detectors, especially so and I am going to advise them to read this.
