qIn his new book, the author introduces us to the world of particles He traces the century of progress in our search for the basic units of matter as well as those of the forces that act on it, starting from the electron and photon, the first entry in the list of elementary quantum particles, and ending up with the quarks and gluons discovered in the last decades of this century. He gives the curious layman a clear understanding of the forefront of our knowledge about the structure of matter at its deepest levelq.Y NambuUniversity of ChicagoqThis is a readable little book on particle physics and is aimed at those with no previous exposure to the subject Nevertheless, as one would expect from a leading contributor to the field, Han takes care to get things right even when using simple language, as for example in his discussion of spinq.CERN CourierWe have a 12-volt car battery, a 30-amp (that is, amperes) appliance, a 1, 000- watt hair dryer, and so on. ... Since a watt is a product of voltage and amperes, a power of 100 watts could come from 10 volts-10 amps, 100 volts-1 amp ... the ampere measures the passage of some prescribed amount of electric charge across any given point in a wire. ... Take the 12-volt battery that puts out 20 amps of current.
