The Theory of Almost Everything: The Standard Model, the Unsung Triumph of… (2006)
There are two scientific theories which, taken together, explain the entire universe. The first, which describes the force of gravity, is widely known: Einstein's Theory of Relativity. But the theory that explains everything else - the Standard Model of Elementary Particles - is virtually unknown among the general public. Here, Oerter shows how what were once thought to be separate forces of nature were combined into a single theory by some of the most brilliant minds of the 20th century. Rich and accessible prose makes this a truly readable book.
