Beyond the God Particle begins where Lederman's best-selling THE GOD PARTICLE left off and continues the discussion of results of the discovery of the Higgs Boson "God Particle" in 2012, considering the history of the idea and why so much matter in the cosmos is hidden. It examines the basic questions surrounding Higgs Boson and the mysterious subatomic entity that creates the most basic of particles, and it provides science in a way that even general-interest and non-physics readers can readily absorb. The result is a strong recommendation for any science and many a general interest collection.
