Believe it or not, this was my "beach read" for the summer. Lying on the dock reading this and watching the ocean waves, I was able to visualize the concepts of particle physics thanks to this book. ( )

More difficult than many of the other popular expositions of the Standard Model (quarks, leptons, bosons). As elusive as ever, to me at least, is a completely understandable account of such aspects of quantum field theory as the gauge principle and the role of group-theoretic rotations in multiple complex dimensions.
