This made some parts of the book seem like a very slow read.

Leon Lederman lo ha logrado. Jun 13, Alex Santoyo rated it really liked it. Led I’m particupa interested in quantum physics layman’s quantum physicsparticularly when using the discipline to try to gain a greater understanding of the very fabric of existence and how that begins to approach spirituality. The best of them were the detailed explanations of how many important particle physics experiments throughout history were done — how they proved what they proved, and how the apparatus was constructed.

Despite initial misgivings, I did eventually come to enjoy it.

Lucidly written and inspiring, it is a must read for anyone even remotely interested in Physics. A very good guide to the standard model of particles. These are said to be the “flavours” of a neutrino. And does gravity not exhibit the oscillation between ddivina attractive and repulsive forces that occur on the atomic scale?

It’s not an easy reading, but Leon Ledderman is a fabulous and funny story teller. Things are explained with tons of examples and metaphors to help you grasp ideas without particla to toil over terrifying maths. But otherwise it was entertaining and interesting.

Overall, it was okay with the amount of information that was easily obtained and ability to diivina but the writing style was beyond annoying bordering on tedious. I regret that I will never quite understand something that is so beautiful, so mysterious in many ways. I understand divna philosophers shouldn’t try to argue with scientific data, but they can legitimately have something to say about partjcula interpretation of data. Primera lectura ‘seria’ del verano.


That should read “uncertainty of I found particle physics fascinating—the universe as creative force—but as the book went on I found my lack of foundational science to be a real hindrance in understanding. He was the Frank L. The author seems to think that I gave this book 5 stars because it is such a great teacher of science and written so well, with great humour to boot.

Is the Higgs field the new aether Lederman asks? The book becomes very actual with the recent discovery in July of the famous Higgs boson. This book is especially significant right now, inas we are about to see the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, begin operation. If anything, this book made me regret my assumption in high school, and later in university, that science was for other people and that, as an artist, I should focus solely on the arts.

Take, for instance, an idea.

There were definitely some laugh-out-loud moments in this book. Lederman shared the Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery of the muon neutrino. In theory, God Particle has the recipe to satisy this penchant, but I cannot get past Lederman’s hokey methods e. This book provides an interesting foray into the deep mechanisms of particle physics.

La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman

Lederman does continuously say that the metaphors and explanations don’t do the mathematical theory justice, but at least gives the reader enough knowledge to continue their learning to the next stage.

If the Universe is the Answer It makes the book more digestible amongst the complex concepts you learn. In the chapters about the modern period of high energy physics, all of the big names of the field made appearances, along with personal anecdotes about many of them.

I can’t say I got it all, but I surely feel like I understand a bit more what’s going on in the world of the very very very small. Nicknamed ‘The Plumber’ due to his preference for experimentation by Murray Gell-Mann, it is clear from this book that Lederman’s work in the 60s and 70s is nothing short of Nobel calibre.

La Partícula Divina

Science is not about status quo. Lederman may be a brilliant scientist but he is a piss poor humorist. This theme is traced all the way from Democritus what little we know of him to the physicists of the Enlightenment, the 19th century, and into the modern era.

Lists with This Book. Mixed throughout the book are also the descriptions of lots of personalities in Physics which I find quite lrderman, showing the human side of Physics personal gripes, competition, late night trips to McDonald’s between experiments, etc.

Dormir quiere decir acurrucarse dicina hora en pagticula suelo del acelerador The author seems to think that empirical science is the only science, that philosophy can be dismissed as unworthy of consideration, and that everything existent is governed by the laws of physics, described by mathematics.
