Synopsis: Offers an introduction to Higgs bosons, looking at the history of the advances in particle physics that led up to their discovery, and their nature.

From School Library Journal: Gr 9 Up-This well-researched series explains the basic principles of subatomic particles in eight information-packed volumes. These text-heavy books aren't for casual readers; instead, they are meant to supplement instruction on particle physics, nuclear physics, and quantum chemistry. Although the titles include an inordinate amount of names and dates, the material is thorough, albeit a bit dry, which is compounded by the black print-on-white page design. Images are used occasionally, and great pains were taken to include a variety of media. Black-and-white photos, oil paintings, illustrations, and copies of handwritten notes (such as Dmitri Mendeleyev's handwritten periodic table from 1869) stand out and resonate with historical significance. Many of the accompanying captions, unfortunately, are lengthy (some more than five sentences long) and feel like paragraphs that the authors couldn't fit in elsewhere. A list of museums and institutions students can visit appears at the end of the book. VERDICT Although comprehensive, the series appeals to a niche audience. Purchase if there is an existing interest in specialized science.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
