Why the Universe Exists: How particle physics unlocks the secrets of everything Reviews

  • Bob Small

    Good, informative. Sometimes felt like it was a series of articles rather than a whole book.

  • Ryan Miller

    A great attempt to make topics approachable that are, by their very nature, not approachable.

  • Chris Evans

    Pretty good, but mostly a history of the subject and a brief overview. It doesn't get interesting until about 3/4ths of the way through when it got a bit deeper into string and loop theory. This book is best for high school students looking for an introduction to the topic.

  • Trevor Sherman

    Interesting stuff. The author tries to make it easy for anyone to understand. That is always a bit annoying but understandable. The problem here though is that it is done by just saying the same things 3 or 4 times in slightly different ways.

    It does go into a fair bit of detail of the history of the Large Hadron Collider that I enjoyed, but in such a short book it should of focused more on the actual finding then to how they came to be.

    All in all I enjoyed it but I am a nerd. If you are new to

    All in all I enjoyed it but I am a nerd. If you are new to the ideas of particle physics I would suggest something by Michio Kaku.

    The title and some chapter headings are overly ambitious. Very little of the "why" type questions are actually answered here. This book serves as a summary of the current state of particle physics research, which amounts to the standard model and a lot of unanswered questions. This book is not particularly engaging and reads too much like a summary of articles or lecture notes.
