Beginners books for a curious kid

  1. May 22, 2013 #1
    I am currently a junior in highschool. I have recently read a few books about sub atomic particles and find my self wanting more. I would love some great and simple books about physics. I am mainly interested in particle physics, the standard model and really anything that has to do with string theory. I have looks at some books and I find that the level of math required to read this is above my current level of understanding. I would love some good reads. Even if it is not related to what I'm interested in. Thanks for your time.

    I'm not familiar with current books in that range, but here's a web site that might be helpful:


    It's sponsored by the Particle Data Group http://www.pdg.lbl.gov/ which is the central clearinghouse for data in high-energy particle physics.
