This one is too good not to post! The July 4 issue of Nature enthuses:
Who knew symmetry could be so brilliantly entertaining? Physicist Dave Goldberg slings the reader straight in at the deep end of this big physics concept, but with enough masterly wit to keep you afloat. If you’ve ever longed to know the nitty-gritty on antimatter; puzzled over the exclusion principle; woken up in a cold sweat wondering why you are not a “sentient cloud of helium”; gritted your teeth over the cosmological principle; or been terrified by the beasts of the ‘particle zoo’, this is for you.
Subscription required, so if you don’t have one, you’ll just have to take my word for it.
We’re at T-1 week, people! Oh, and also I have an interesting io9 “Ask a Physicist” column tomorrow on where, exactly, the Standard Model comes from.
