Nobel laureate physicist Leon Lederman asserted that he named the Higgs boson of his 1993 "the god particle" because his publisher wouldn't let him call the goddamn particle. Whatever its nickname, the boson is one elusive submicroscopic smidgen that holds powerful implications for physicists, though somewhat fewer for soapbox theologians. It's doubtful anyone can better explain its significance in light of the March 2013 confirmation of its existence than Quantum Physics for Poets and Symmetry and the Beautiful Universe coauthors Lederman and Christopher Hall. A must-read for readers of cutting-edge science.
