"From [this book, readers] will learn a bit about the accelerators around the world, their technologies, and the physical principles used to create them. . . . Wilson takes care of the reader, leading him gently through some of the complexities of the real accelerator world -- imperfections and all. . . . [It] is an easily accessible descriptive walk through the physics and technologies of particle accelerators. As such it could be a useful read for scientists who find that their research depends heavily on use of the many different types of accelerators in use around the world." -- Physics Today
