Great Book

by Nathan Lucas on 10/16/2014

Wonderful Book, delivers what is promised, a clear concise description of the basics of particle physics, I would not recommend if you have difficulty understanding abstract concepts, as the book and field in general are chock full of abstractions. Only thing I would've wanted is a more in depth look at the various mesons. Favorite part was that regarding the existence of matter through Spontaneous symmetry breaking. Read More
