The authors have done a fabulous job in orchestrating their discussion of physics: a herculean task, evidently carried out well. Moreover, the way the authors go about this follows the historical development of modern physics, from quantum mechanics, to quantum electrodynamics, to quantum field theory, and of course particle physics and the standard model. Very impressive. * Michael C. Berg, Loyola Marymount University *
This is an excellent introduction, at an advanced undergraduate level, to the physics of elementary particles and their mutual interactions. Unlike many books in this subject, it starts from a historical and experimental perspective to illustrate how the present theoretical framework, the Standard Model, came about through a long and fascinating bottom-up process. The book will play an important role in inspiring undergraduate students to undertake graduate studies, or perhaps a career, in theoretical (or experimental) high energy physics. * Gabriele Veneziano, Department of Theoretical Physics, CERN, Professor Emeritus, College de France *
