Nobel Prize-winner in Physics in 1988, designer of the Superconducting Supercollider, and former director of Fermi Labs, Lederman leads a tour of the 2,500 year search for the answer to the ancient question: what is the world made of? Describing the current state of particle physics, the author argues (surprise!) for the need for a huge new particle accelerator to find the ultimate building block, the God Particle.

display_description In this extraordinarily accessible and enormously witty book, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman guides us on a fascinating tour of the history of particle physics. The book takes us from the Greeks' earliest scientific observations through Einstein and beyond in an inspiring celebration of human curiosity. It ends with the quest for the Higgs boson, nicknamed the God Particle, which scientists hypothesize will help unlock the last secrets of the subatomic universe. With a new preface by Lederman, The God Particle will leave you marveling at our continuing pursuit of the infinitesimal.
