The Particle at the End of the Universe

Written by Sean Carroll

Narrated by Jonathan Hogan


Rate & Review

It was the universe's most elusive particle, the lynchpin for everything scientists dreamed up to explain how physics works. It had to be found. But projects as big as CERN's Large Hadron Collider don't happen without incredible risks - and occasional skullduggery. In the definitive account of this landmark event, Sean Carroll reveals the insights, rivalry, and wonder that fuelled the Higgs discovery, and takes us on a riveting and irresistible ride to the very edge of physics today.

Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology

Named a Best Science Book of the Year by The Guardian, Financial Times, and New Scientist, this is an accessible guide to the hunt for the Higgs-Boson particle

‘Excellent...This book is so hard to put down. That's testament to Carroll, a practising scientist, also being a gifted writer’ NEW SCIENTIST

‘Vivid...Carroll is particularly skilled at tackling the complexities of particle physics in a readable yet reasonably uncompromising’ FINANCIAL TIMES
