商品の説明

内容紹介

A fascinating tour of particle physics from Nobel Prize winner Leon Lederman.

 

At the root of particle physics is an invincible sense of curiosity. Leon Lederman embraces this spirit of inquiry as he moves from the Greeks' earliest scientific observations to Einstein and beyond to chart this unique arm of scientific study. His survey concludes with the Higgs boson, nicknamed the God Particle, which scientists hypothesize will help unlock the last secrets of the subatomic universe, quarks and all—it's the dogged pursuit of this almost mystical entity that inspires Lederman's witty and accessible history.

レビュー

"One of the clearest, most enjoyable new  science books in years... explains the entire history  of physics and cosmology. En route, you'll laugh  so hard you won't realize how much you are  learning." -- San Francisco Examiner --このテキストは、ハードカバー版に関連付けられています。

5つ星のうち 5.0 WOW! from a layman 2014/4/1

Mr. Lederman, thank you for putting IT all in plain language; I agree with your statement in Chapter 9: "the arguments were abstract, mathematical, and very lively. Most of it was over my head." Nevertheless, the presentation of a very complex subject (even those studying it do not know ALL the questions/answers) is so well done, this is on my to read again list.

This book presents the behind-the-scenes search for our origins, the before the Big Bang what?, the what is going to happen next; the brains, actions, competition, and risks of the participants in this enterprise are tremendous. The only thing they are not searching for is why humankind is so ignorant, violent, and self-centered.

Nevertheless, I highly recommend this tome to those lay persons who are interested in physics, but are willing to let others do the heavy lifting, especially since Lederman sees the creator as female and has peppered a large dose of humor into his great work! Again, thanks, Mr. Lederman.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Good book; very poor Kindle edition 2015/11/2
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Note that this review is for the KINDLE edition:
1) I continue to be surprised--in a sad way--that so many Kindle book versions are as poor as they are, and this book is certainly an example. Whether it's true or not, this Kindle version gives every indication of having been generated by an OCR program scanning a paper document, and released without proofreading. Every few pages you'll find missing punctuation--which is perhaps merely annoying--but all too often you'll see words misspelled in ways that clearly indicate what was originally written (e.g. "for example, the sim, and indeed, in time, the distant stars" where "sim" should obviously be "sun.") Sometimes the problems are more serious than a simple misspelling: in a section discussing Thompson's experiments involving a ratio e/m, "e/m" is constantly written as "elm" (like the tree); in a description of Maxwell's equations, the text says "In these equations, £ stands for the electric field, £ stands for the magnetic field, and c, the velocity of light...". In case it doesn't print correctly here on Amazon, the text not only uses the symbol for Pounds Sterling for the electric field...which would be bad enough...it uses that same symbol for _both_ the electric field and the magnetic field. These are just a couple of _far_ too many text mistakes that occur throughout this edition.
The bottom line is that if you're at least a little familiar with the material, you'll only be annoyed every couple of pages, but if this is new to you, you should definitely avoid the Kindle edition of this book, because it'll just be confusing.
(I should admit I haven't seen the paper copy; it's possible, though I'd be amazed to find that this level of mistakes exists in all editions.)
2) The book itself is interesting and and enjoyable. Frankly, I think the author should leave out his nearly-constant attempts at humor--most of which fall flat in my opinion, and so are nothing but distractions--but humor is highly subjective, and I'm sure others will think it gives the book a boost. Overall, though, I enjoyed the perspective supplied by this book as the history of physics was used to lead the reader up to the title matter.
5つ星のうち 4.0 The Search for the Ultimate Simplicity Continues 2013/12/28

形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I love long books that peek my interest, challenge conventional ways of thinking, and sufficiently address / answer the author's main topic; the latter part is where I feel the book comes up short. Despite needing updating since it was originally written, it starts with a well articulated and interesting history of physics (I especially like his sense of humor) however following that, if your intent is to learn quantum physics, be prepared to read disproportionately about supercolliders and the authors's experiments, and throughout take notes to try to comprehend the science (also might help if you took an intro to physics course). Among many other terms, he explains and speaks fluently of anti-protons, baryons, bosons, dimensions, electrons, fermions, gluons, hadrons, ions, kaons, leptons, mesons, muons, neutrons, nucleons, photons, pions, protons, selectrons, sleptons, tevetrons, and upsilons. Don't get me wrong, I think (as apparently does the author) that he is brilliant, which is why, despite my degree in mathematics, the book makes me feel like a peon (so I do not feel bad about obtaining the book at a significant discount). If I have walked away with any lasting impressions, they are 1. physicists apparently like words that end in "on" and 2. I'm now convinced that they will not solve the Higgs Boson God Particle mystery until they have exhausted all the combinations and permutations of such words. ... Anon
5つ星のうち 5.0 great patch for my ignorance of the last 50 years of physics 2015/3/29
投稿者 Hal Gabow - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Excellent introduction to the physics of subatomic particles, not to mention background
starting at the very beginning (ancient Greeks and Galileo). Well written - Lederman
has a wonderful sense of humor. As close to a page-turner as you can get, even when
progress slows to allow excursions to the Wikipedia or a handy physics text. (Supplementary
reading helps clarify the physics, and also gives more up-to-date info than the book, which was written
in 1993, but it really wasn't dated.) It also offers insights into
the lives and personalities of physicists (as well as entertaining quips about the
2 cultures of theorists vs. experimentalists). I even enjoyed the details of particle accelerators
and detectors, which I wasn't interested in beforehand.

My only complaint is the Kindle edition is poorly scanned. There are many misspellings and
even words that are incomprehensible, as well as technical terms (eg particle names) that are clearly wrong
and have to be guessed at.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Excellent, worth reading in spite of shortcomings 2013/12/15
投稿者 stribor - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Excellent and highly readable overview of modern and contemporary physics. Intelligent, clear and demystifying. Humor, even where it (rarely) misses the point, is exhilarating. There is not only humor, but passion too, which deserves respect. However, there are some shortcomings. For example, when the author criticizes Capra for making the unfounded parallels between contemporary physics and the Eastern mysticism, he actually does the same, only in different terms, making equally unfounded parallel between contemporary physics and Ionian philosophers and Democritus. Is Democritus' atom really closer to subatomic world of contemporary physics than the concepts of the ancient Chinese philosophy? Or is it just the name (atom) and the doubtful concept of basically linear progress - in spite of sporadic setbacks - of our civilization, beginning with the "birth of science" in ancient Greece? Equally problematic is the disqualification of Aristotle, by making him in fact responsible for the worldview ("medieval") based not on Aristotle but on the peculiar version of Aristotelianism. It's funny and interesting: it seems that great physicists have some problem with philosophy (e.g. S. Hawking closes his otherwise lovely and enjoyable book "A Brief History of Time" with quite unnecessary remarks about philosophy, proclaiming Wittgenstein "the most famous philosopher" of the 20th century. Wittgenstein is ok, but why "the most famous", for goodness' sake?). The physicists are great guys, especially those who are capable of writing such fine books. As for the philosophy, they probably do not have enough time to learn more about it. In conclusion I very much enjoyed reading this book and learned a lot.
