Editorial Reviews


The Large Hadron Collider leaps off the page.

[The book] neatly combines the two reasons why the LHC makes people go 'wow': the exotic sounding physics [...] and the sheer magnificence of the machinery itself. (The Times )

Among popular books about particle physics, this one stands out - quite literally. (New Scientist )

Each pop-out genuinely illuminates the workings of the detector and the interactions of the particles it hopes to find. (Nature )

Great book to describe the Atlas project, I am not scientific and wanted to understand this research at CERN. It was fun and informative. Love the pop ups.
