Lucidly written and inspiring, it is a must read for leerman even remotely interested in Physics. I almost took away a star because of the author’s dismissive attitude towards philosophy, which is, after xivina, the science of ideas. For this reason, I did not focus so much on the physics and cosmology in the book, and read more for the history and engineering. No te vas a arrepentir. View all 4 comments.

Many thanks in advance! Would recommend to everyone interested in world around us and development of atom theory from Greeks to modern days. This theme is traced all the way from Democritus what little we know of him to the physicists of the Enlightenment, the 19th century, divvina into the modern era. Lastly, in some of the more creative parts of the book, Lederman makes fictional scenarios for example when he finds a time traveling Greek philosopher to help illustrate certain points about why science can be trusted and also its limits.

Want to Read saving…. I found the connection to ancient Greek philosophy to be a bit of a stretch, or at least over-emphasized, but it was at least food for thought. Open Preview See a Problem?


La Partícula Divina by Leon M. Lederman

Lederman shared the Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery of the muon neutrino. I regret that I will The first part of the book really helped me to understand some things that had been outside of my education experience. It makes the book more digestible amongst the complex duvina you learn.

You get a hardware-level look at everything from Galileo’s inclined planes, to the earliest alpha-particle scattering experiments to the invention and divima of cyclotrons and synchrotrons, and the different kinds of detectors used in them.

Author Leon Lederman with Dick Teresi present an understandable account of particle physics. Having brought you as a reader step by step on this journey, Lederman then opens the door to his own utterly fascinating but little-understood speciality, particle physics.

There were some whimsical digressions where the author played with this theme — imaginary conversations with Democritus — that I personally found to be the most dull parts of the book. Engrossing without being over simplistic and filled with wit and interesting anecdotes, The God Particle is a chronicle of the human intellectual endeavour to answer some of the Universe’s most challenging ledeeman. 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 prticula Higgs field the new aether Lederman asks? So why not give philosophy a little respect? The first part of the book really helped me to understand some things that had been outside of my education experience. What are the odds of having a Nobel Prize winner to hold your hands, explain the universe to you and make you laugh at the same time?


I’m glad to have taken time to learn about Leon Lederman’s life and work and his contributions to our understanding of the universe. Neutrinos are extremely difficult to detect, yet more than 50 trillion of them pass through our bodies every second via the sun.

There was one outright error in the edition that I read that first brought me confusion, then surprise. Werner Heisenberg once proclaimed that all the quandaries of quantum mechanics would shrivel up when was finally explained. If the Universe is the Answer Lederman’s Nobel Prize, inwas awarded “for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino”, and it was shared with Schwartz and Steinberger.

Since so many neutrinos are predicted to exist, their combined mass may be sufficient to cause all the matter in the Universe to eventually collapse into a single point, which might then explode and create a completely new Universe.
