I'm a 14 year old, living in Ireland. The country where many great authors and poets have come from. Unfortunately not nearly enough particle physicists. So my question is: How do I learn as much as I can about particle physics. There's only so many books you can read before you start to just waste your money on information you can't understand. And my science teacher isn't exactly a genius. By the way, I'm posting this because the other day I was talking to someone roughly the same age as me, who also had a great interest in particle physics, but he knew so much more than me.
