The quest began in 430 B.C. when a Greek philosopher smelled bread baking and imagined that an invisible particle might be the building block of all matter. He called it the a-tom - "that which cannot be cut"--And its pursuit has become science's longest-running experiment. Now, in a book of dazzling originality, Nobel laureate Leon Lederman tells the story of the 2,500-year search for the answer to an ancient question: what is the world made of? Lederman joined this search in the 1950s, and his many contributions to our understanding of subatomic architecture have ranked him among the foremost experimental physicists in the world. The God Particle is yet another remarkable achievement: drawing on a lifetime of research and teaching, Lederman shines such a clear light on the mysteries of matter that they are at last understandable to everyone. With great wit and erudition, he describes the long string of Eureka moments that have brought us tantalizingly close to unlocking the last secrets of the universe. Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Rutherford, and Einstein are just a few of the heroes in Lederman's tale, each one a brilliant detective looking for clues behind the veil of matter. The past fifty years have brought the development of the most complex experimental tool ever built - the particle accelerator, an immensely powerful knife that cuts matter into quarks and leptons and reveals the forces that drive them. Lederman explains how accelerators work and argues passionately for the need for a huge new machine that can find the ultimate a-tom. He believes that this particle - the God Particle - orchestrates the cosmic symphony, and he dreams of its discovery, hoping it will reduce the laws of physics to an equation so simple that it can fit on a T-shirt. Using humor, metaphor, and vivid storytelling, Leon Lederman takes us on an adventure into an invisible world. The God Particle is a celebration of human curiosity, a thrilling book by a man whose genius for discovering the secrets of the universe is matched by his gift for illuminating the wonders of science.… (mehr)

Buen libro, con algunos capítulos mas lentos que otros, pero bien en general. ( )

A fun, and funny history of particle physics. I appreciated Lederman's focus on experimental contributions to our understanding of the quantum theory, but I thought he could have done a better job providing some theoretical background to things such as relativity, uncertainty, etc. Still, an enjoyable read.

This is an extremely interesting and entertaining look at the search for the smallest particle. Molecules are made of atoms and atoms are made of sub-atomic particle and some of these are likewise composed of even smaller particles. Science books generally don't hold my attention very long, but this one did.

A very creative presentation of the concepts covered. ( )

One of my favorite science books because of its emphasis on experimentation.

This was an excellent if sometimes confusing book to read, but if you put in the effort, it is an excellent read. Lederman starts from the beginning with the Greek philospher Democritas and his a-tom. The author goes on to describe numerous eureka moments in the field of Nuclear Physics. This, at least to me, adds a lot of excitement to the story. You can almost feel the Physicist's inner demons as they travel from disappointment to that tantlizing moment, of knowing something that no one else in the world knows. He explains the particle acclerator, which is the main tool of Nuclear physics. Lederman speaks of the SSC, or the Superconducting Super Collider, located in Texas, unfortunately, the book was published before the United States turned its back on science. Now our physicists must travel to CERN (The European Center for Nuclear Research) in Geneva, to complete their research. I think America has forgotten. The only reason we have led the world was due to science, and now the Republicans in the U.S. House and Senate, who believe the universe is only 6,000 years old, do their best to eliminate all fields of endeavour that dispute their false beliefs. Too bad for us, we elected them. ( )

I like relativity and quantum theories
because I don't understand them
and they make me feel as if space shifted
about like a swan that can't settle,
refusing to sit still and be measured;
and as if the atom were an impulsive thing
always changing its mind.
— D.H. Lawrence

In the very beginning there was a void - a curious form of vacuum - a nothingness containing no space, no time, no matter, no light, no sound.
