Reviews

"'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.
