Editorial Reviews

Review

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 )

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been wanting to purchase this book ever since I heard about the ATLAS Experiment a few years ago. Instead of traveling over to CERN just to buy this book, there was no hesitation that I would buy this one when it came up in my recommendations My anticipation for this book only heightened the disappointment I had when I opened up the book for the first time. Parts of the pop-up were ripped, bent, crumpled, looking as if it's been used heavily before. There was no indication throughout the purchase that it would have been used before or damaged (the full pop-up ATLAS model contained crucial parts ripped and unglued to other parts).

The book itself is great and is a good way to introduce people to High Energy Physics in a fun and unique way. Sadly, this book hasn't met the expectations I had because of the poor quality of what I received.

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.
