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 If anything, this book made me regret my assumption in high school, and later in university, that science was for other people and that, as an artist, I should focus solely on the arts.

These are said to be the “flavours” of a neutrino. Interestingly, he writes that it takes a grad student at least two years “to develop quantum intuition.

leserman Science is not about status quo. Not so much that it’s wrong, as that it is incomplete. But this attitude is so common that I let it go unpunished. Mixed throughout the book are also the descriptions of lots of personalities in Physics which I find quite interesting, showing the human side of Physics personal gripes, competition, late night trips to McDonald’s between experiments, etc.

On the other hand, there were also fascinating stories about famous scientists that I had not heard before, and even a few lesser-known scientists that I was introduced to for the larticula time, like Boscovich. But if you want to learn more about the improvements on this topic you should read “Beyond God Particle” from the same author.


I regret that I will The first part of the book really helped me to understand some things that had been outside of my education experience.

La Partícula Divina

Author Leon Lederman with Dick Teresi present an understandable account of particle physics. Lederman provides an entertaining history of physics and much of it is accessible to the general reader. I paryicula this book 5 stars because paarticula is such a great teacher of science and written so well, with great humour to boot. I was wondering if someone on here could recommend a similar book, with details on recent developments in the field? 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.

The entire aim of the LHC is to find the elusive Higgs boson, the “God Particle” of the book’s title, which would largely confirm the Standard Model of physics. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. This book is fairly dense in terms of physics technicalities, but one can still appreciate the humorous anecdotes throughout. For instance, logic, necessary for all intelligent activity in time, including that of all scientists, belongs under the heading of philosophy.

Dec 16, Beatrice De La Costa rated it it was amazing. Lists with This Book. Mar 17, A.

Is the Higgs field the new aether Lederman asks? As generally explained in the book, a neutrino ‘little neutral one’ is an elementary particle of neutral electric charge and almost 0 mass. 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.


Science fans, duvina who want to know more about particle physics, anyone with a lively mind. Lederman’s Nobel Prize, inwas awarded “for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino”, and it was shared with Schwartz and Steinberger. I understand that philosophers shouldn’t try to argue with scientific data, but they can legitimately have something to say about the interpretation of data. The first part of the book is a vivid and hilarious historical survey divinq ideas and discoveries in Western physics from the Greeks down to the present day.

He brings to the layman understanding of rhe profound laws that govern the universe.

La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman

Is there need for a graviton? Great piece of science book, hard to understand in moments, but overall funny, vivid and informing book.

He was the Frank L. 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.

As a history of particle physics, it’s pretty good. There were definitely some laugh-out-loud moments in this book. Alternatively, under Einstein geometric theory of gravity, is gravity really a force at all? Neutrinos are extremely difficult to detect, yet more than 50 trillion of them pass through our bodies every second via the sun. Erdogan Cicek Richard Feynman is the master of this type. Many thanks in advance!
