Sean Carroll

It was the universe’s most elusive particle, the linchpin for everything scientists dreamed up to explain how physics works. It had to be found. But projects as big as CERN’s Large Hadron Collider don’t happen without incredible risks – and occasional skullduggery. In the definitive account of this landmark event, Caltech physicist and acclaimed science writer Sean Carroll reveal the insights, rivalry, and wonder that fuelled the Higgs discovery and takes us on a riveting, irresistible ride to the very edge of physics today.
