Description
Chronicling the biggest science story of our time, the Guardian's science correspondent Ian Sample traces four decades in the search for the so-called "God particle," the tiny Higgs boson. From Peter Higgs's initial hypothesis in 1964—that an undiscovered particle gives matter its mass—to the planning, building, and operating of the Large Hadron Collider (the most elaborate scientific device ever constructed) to prove the Higgs boson exists, Sample provides firsthand insights from numerous scientists, including the elusive Professor Higgs himself.

"This was my holiday page-turner: a clear and engrossing description of the physics of the Higgs boson (with surrounding weirdness), combined with a breathless account of the leap-frogging race for its discovery."—New Scientist
