'Professor Thomson has written a great textbook on modern particle physics (including a masterful exposition of the discovery of the Higgs boson) that provides a professional introduction to the field, suitable for upper-division undergraduate as well as graduate courses. His distinctive presentation style combines clarity with [an] admirable level of rigor. The book is richly illustrated with helpful diagrams and tables, and is destined to be a favorite of both students and instructors alike.' Dmitry Budker, University of California, Berkeley
'Mark Thomson has written a wonderful new introductory textbook on particle physics ... [it] is well written ... easy to read, with clear pedagogical lines of reasoning, and the layout is pleasing ... as I am teaching an introduction to theory this autumn, I will definitely be using this book.' CERN Courier
'... gem of a book ... excellent and highly readable ... well structured with useful chapter summaries and many good student exercises with on-line solutions. It is thoroughly recommended.' The Observatory
'... this book has my highest recommendation. In its effective, clear and comprehensive treatment of so much detailed material, it represents a remarkable achievement on the part of its author, and is likely to become a standard work to put into the hands of new graduate students in particle physics. Their supervisors will do well to buy it too!' Peter J. Bussey, Contemporary Physics
