      Difficult to follow (of course, it's about quantum physics!) , but it provides a clear chronological record of the major discoveries.

      Somehow was able to understand this one a bit better. I guess it must be because "by trying to find out what we're made of, we really have found out just what we're made of"

      The brief intro to the particle physics best fit for dummies like me. Totally recommend to those expressing a bit of interest in this complicated and mindblowing science. Fast and enjoyable reading, the pocket-size book totally suits you unless you prefer carrying heavy stuff.

      1) If light is a wave(transverse), then what is waving to transmit energy? Huygens imagined "the aether" by using Descartes' concept of the "plenum". Newton employed something like aether - "Aetheral Medium" to explain the refraction of light.2) Michael Faraday had passed an electric current through a glass jar to study electricity in the absence of air. The jar produce what looks like a beam of light passing between negatively-charged(cathode) and positively-charged(anode).The German school, wh [...]

      I’ve long been a fan of the massive ‘Introducing’ series of graphic guides and even contributed one (Introducing Infinity) with the excellent Oliver Pugh. They provide an easy-to-digest overview of a topic, using pages that are dominated by illustrations that often remind me of Terry Gilliam’s work on Monty Python, combined with speech bubbles and small chunks of text to get the message across.Some work better than others and for me, Introducing Particle Physics was a mixed experience. I [...]

      The authors make a valiant attempt to familiarize Quantum Field Theory to an educated public in 192 illustrated lesions in a small paperback book. Unfortunately, they fail. Their goal was unattainable. Such a manifold complicated subject is a serious challenge for doctoral candidates majoring in Quantum Mechanics Physics. Each page is presented clearly, has a picture of the physicist(s) who discovered or developed the quantum point discussed, and shows relevant graphics. That’s fine. The most [...]

      Overall a very interesting read. I would have to disagree with it being an introduction to particles physics. Some of the concepts in the book were not explained in detail as one would to a person who never heard of the concept the book likes to reference to throughout the novel. A rudimentary knowledge of physics is needed to understand and enjoy the book.

      I like it! Easy to read and a very handy glossary at the back.Love the comic book styleI received this book through the First Reads, thank you for that.The previews of two other books in this series that I received with it also look like they're worth reading. :)

    • Crescendo says:

      Very informative and clear, as clear as this kind of topics can be. This series has such a nice concept! Makes you want to read them all

    • Yassine says:

      nice book

    • Mick Kelly says:

      A good short introduction to quantum physics. Easy to read and follow, and a great intro to read before the revamped LHC makes the rewrite it!

    • Nigel Upcott says:

      A valid attempt at making it accessibleI am not going to pretend that I followed everything, but it is certainly not easy to condense this vast field if research into a small volume and this was a good attempt.
