A lay person's look at the universe's 'cool' stuff
on 24 August 2013
If you already know a bit about atoms and sub atomic particles you won't get much from this book. If you know nothing about it and you like books written in 'coolspeak' then it gives you a taster. Also read "The Particles of the Universe" by Jeff Yee. This book describes the actual shape and construction of the electron, proton and neutron. Jeff's explanation makes a lot more sense than string theory and is the best book I have yet read on the subject.
