Another book review

See friends, relatives and readers. I do read.

Not to sure if you know. Nearly half of 17 years olds say they read for pleasure no more than one or more times a year-if that. That's way down from a decade ago. Yep that is not me. You would always find me reading or within hand reach of a book. Despite the up rise of technology which makes it so easy to find a book and read best off all some books are free despite that teenagers don't read for pleasure. Though it is surprising or to me anyhow, the teenagers spend most of the time on their gadget but still don't find time to read. Well least's you know now!


Smashing physics


The discovery of the Higgs boson made headlines around the world. Two scientists, Peter Higgs and Fran├žois Englert, whose theories predicted its existence, shared a Nobel Prize. The discovery was the culmination of the largest experiment ever run, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.

But what really is a Higgs boson and what does it do? How was it found? And how has its discovery changed our understanding of the fundamental laws of nature? And what did it feel like to be part of it?

Jon Butterworth is one of the leading physicists at CERN and this book is the first popular inside account of the hunt for the Higgs. It is a story of incredible scientific collaboration, inspiring technological innovation and ground-breaking science. It is also the story of what happens when the world's most expensive experiment blows up, of neutrinos that may or may not travel faster than light, and the reality of life in an underground bunker in Switzerland.

This book will also leave you with a working knowledge of the new physics and what the discovery of the Higgs particle means for how we define the laws of nature. It will take you to the cutting edge of modern scientific thinking


Maybe I should a wrap up book review! Maybe at the end of the month I will give you an update of what I have read and a little review. Well least I have another excuse to blog.

Right those assignments are getting done quickly than participated. Who knew that blogging makes you worker faster when doing assignments. Though I still got my life stages one to do. So please excuse me. However if you want to look at what I have done about is inheritance really in all in our genes?
