WARPED PASSAGES by Lisa Randall (Harvard Physics professor) is available
at Amazon books for about $10.50...a solid value for physics geeks...

Lots of detail, little mathematics, covers in detail elementary particles, Standard Model, Supersymmetry string theory, proposals for extra dimensional universes.

Sample insight: [p 231]

The true electric force at large distances appears to be smaller than the classical short distance electric force because a photon that communicates a force over short distances more frequently takes path that doesn't involve travel...through a big weakening cloud of virtual particles.
highly recommend, but not quite 'very highly recommened'.....just my opinion....
