Zeptospace Odyssey---looks like the first witty LHC book Amazon lets you browse an ample sample of this new hip HEP book. It's a fun book about fundamental physics with characters and anecdotes going back to Bohr and brought up to the Large Hadron minute. Gian Francesco Giudice is a CERN theorist. Book hit the market 25 January, 2010. The way he uses language, metaphor and imagery to convey physics ideas shows mastery, talent (plus a sense of humor). From what I can see, I think he makes Brian Greene look like a klutz. https://www.amazon.com/Zeptospace-O...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266250510&sr=1-1 I used the "look inside" feature to browse around in it. They also have a PDF of the book's "prologue". I haven't looked at it. Hope it is up to the samples you get using the "surprise me" function. See what you think.
