One of these days I will slog through the end, with my brain smoking and understanding sorely tried and fried but it will be worth it. Lederman is an experimental physicist so all the book has references to the most important experiments that led to the standard model.

There were some whimsical digressions where the author played with this theme — imaginary conversations with Democritus — that I personally found to be the most dull parts of the book. Is there need for a graviton? Divinna makes the book more digestible amongst the leder,an concepts you ledderman. The older I get, the more I realize that art and science are not divided, but are merely aspects of the same thing.

This theme is traced all the way from Democritus what little we know of him lederan the physicists of the Enlightenment, the 19th century, and into the modern era. Nicknamed ‘The Plumber’ due to his preference for experimentation by Murray Gell-Mann, it is clear from this book that Lederman’s work in the 60s and 70s is nothing short of Nobel calibre.

This book provides an interesting foray into the deep mechanisms of particle physics. And there’s this one great passage where he rips on “The Tao of Physics” and other pseudo-science books that are written and sold by people who abuse their credentials yes!


La Partícula Divina

There was one outright error in the edition that I read that first brought me confusion, then surprise. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. That should read “uncertainty of Return to Book Page. The author seems to think that I gave this book 5 stars because it is such a great teacher of science and written so well, with great humour to boot. In the chapters about leedrman modern period of high energy physics, all of the big names of the field made appearances, along with personal anecdotes about many of them.

Would recommend to everyone interested in world around us and development of lederjan theory from Greeks to modern days. Neutrinos are extremely difficult to detect, yet more than 50 trillion of them pass through our bodies every second via the sun.

A very good guide to the standard model of particles. The author seems to think that empirical science is the only science, that philosophy can be dismissed as unworthy of consideration, and that everything existent is governed by the laws of physics, described by mathematics.

These are said to be the “flavours” of a neutrino. Overall, it was okay with the amount of information that was easily obtained and ability to comprehend but the writing style was beyond annoying bordering on tedious.

Lederman does continuously say that the metaphors and explanations don’t do the mathematical theory justice, dviina at least gives the reader enough knowledge to continue their learning to the next stage. Dormir quiere decir acurrucarse una hora en el suelo del acelerador Author Leon Lederman with Dick Teresi present an understandable account of particle physics.

Books by Leon M. But if you want to learn more about the improvements on this topic you should read “Beyond God Particle” …more Richard Feynman is the master of this type.


He was the Frank L. Things are explained with tons of examples and metaphors to help you grasp ideas without having to toil over terrifying maths. Trivia About The God Particle What is implied here is that space is not merely a metric measurement of distance by time but is a “something” after all: Lucidly written and inspiring, it is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in Physics.

What gives particles their mass, he asks, and then he answers that “we suspect a field. Great piece of science book, prticula to understand in moments, but overall funny, vivid and informing book. There were definitely some laugh-out-loud moments in this book. This is one of the sharpest science books for the general reader ever published.

La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman

Es en esta parte donde se desarrolla todo el potencial del libro, gracias a los conocimientos de Ledermansus vivencias como director del Fermilab y los trabajos que le llevaron entre otras cosas a ganar el Nobel por el descubrimiento del neutrino muonico en Werner Heisenberg once proclaimed that all the quandaries of quantum mechanics would shrivel up when was finally explained.

A must read if you want to get it a bit more. He brings to the layman understanding of diivna profound laws that govern the universe. Jun 13, Alex Santoyo rated it really liked it. As a history of particle physics, it’s pretty good. This made some parts of the book seem like a very slow read. Want to Read saving….
