Reviews

`A thorough and readable explanation of the lengthy hunt for the Higgs boson and why its discovery last year is so important.' New Scientist `Higgs helps put Higgs' contribution in context ... It's a book I imagine the reticent Higgs would approve of.' Jessica Griggs, New Scientist `a tendency towards brevity and clarity make for a handy guide to the long hunt for an elusive quarry.' Nature `Higgs is an impressive volume, clarifying details, making the concepts that have been in dispute for years finally lucid ... Higgs drills deep under your skin, constantly ferreting out new vistas, easily escaping our eyes. Baggott brings these-and more-together to form a solid concept of the God Particle effort-read it.' San Francisco Book Review
