Summary

One of the biggest discoveries in physics, the quest for the Higgs boson demonstrates the value of a good theory. In July 2012, a Higgs-like particle was found near the energies scientists predicted. Now, armed with better evidence and better questions, the scientific process continues. In this audiobook, we’ve gathered our best reporting to explain that process - the theories, the search, the discovery, and the ongoing questions.

Kudos to those who assembled this

This is an enlightening account of the last 40 or so years in physics. You will get a guilty pleasure feeling when the narrative is from years back and the physicist is so sure about a discovery to be made and it obviously never worked out the way they thought it would. Towards the end of the book, we get into beyond the Standard Model and hear insights in those directions.
