Gap in the market for a book on the Standard Model

Main Question or Discussion Point

Summary:: Is there a primarily non-technical book covering all aspects of the Standard Model of particle physics?

The Standard Model comes up a lot in YouTube videos. There must be a decent amount of public interest.

I think there would be a market for a semi-technical but accessible for the interested audience book covering it.

Or does such a book already exist?

Hm, enough to share the 1999 Nobel prize in physics with this former PhD student G. 't Hooft...

I am currently reading Deep Down Things, it is very interesting and would recommend it. Another good book is The Second Creation.

So in reality, there is no gap.

I was sure I put a question mark in the original title.
