Caltech physicist and acclaimed author Sean Carroll offers listeners this eye-opening profile of the Large Hadron Collider and the search for the mysterious Higgs boson particle, the subatomic building block that imbues elementary particles with mass. Here Carroll chronicles how such a complex project got off the ground in the first place and explains why this discovery is so important, and what it means for the future of physics.

This read was pretty interesting, for a book about arcane physics! Not being a physicist didn't stop me from understanding any of the material presented, either. It was all explained in easy language meant for non-physicists. It was also a pretty good story about the hows and whys wrapped around the actual physics parts. Well narrated, too, without the usual scientific dryness one would expect from a textbook. I recommend this if you have any interest in how things work.
