What's the deal with 20th-Century physics? How and why did it get so complicated, so abstract, that even Einstein had trouble believing in it? Most of us need someone to come along and explain it all in words that make sense; fortunately, astrophysicist and science writer extraordinaire John Gribbin has seized that role with a flair and passion unequaled. He has outdone himself with Q Is For Quantum: An Encyclopedia of Particle Physics, 545 pages of definitions, histories, and biographical sketches.
