The world of theoretical and experimental physics is changing at a very rapid pace. This book was written in the eighties and was pushing and heavily relying in the SSC in Texas which was actually canceled apparently the week after this book was published. On the plus side, it provided a very readable and somewhat understandable explanation of particle physics and what experimental evidence led Dr Higgs to propose the Higgs Field idea. Hr didn't name it, someone else did. Anyway, since it was written when the evolution of accelerators and colliders was capable of nowhere near what energy levels needed to prove or deny the theory. That would not happen for almost thirty years. I would recommend this book to anyone who wanted a good history of and explanations of particle physics and proposals of new theories and ideas.

This book is packed full of an incredible amount of very interesting information! Everything from the beginnings of particle physics to modern hadron colliders with their historical backgrounds, and then some!
