Description

Winner of the Royal Society Winton Prize for Science BooksA Best Science Book of the Year for the Guardian, Financial Times, and New ScientistIt was the universe's most elusive particle, the linchpin 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, Caltech physicist and acclaimed science writer 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.
