Higgs Force: Cosmic Symmetry Shattered: The story of the greatest scientific discovery for 50 years

By Nicholas Mee

Higgs Force tells the incredible story of the most important scientific discovery of the past 50 years. It begins with the ideas of the Greek philosophers over two thousand years ago, and takes us on a journey through many of the most important scientific discoveries in history before bringing us right up to date with the discovery of the Higgs particle in July 2012.

‘The book is excellent on several levels. It is well written, thoughtful, and engaging. The author presents the material with very little mathematics, making it accessible to nonscientific audiences. Summing Up: Highly recommended.’

—CHOICE Review

‘A delightfully readable and accessible account of the search for the force which ensures that there is something rather than nothing in the Universe.’

—John Gribbin, Astrophysicist and Science Author

‘A remarkable story told with lucidity and verve.’

—Jonathan Evans, Lecturer in Physics, Cambridge University
