By the author of the highly acclaimed 2004 Rosen Publishing Group Library of Subatomic Particles,
this set captures the excitement of the latest developments in subatomic physics,
including books about the recently confirmed Higgs Boson
and the Large Hadron Collider where it was discovered.

These books tell the history and science of the discovery of subatomic particles that make up everyday matter. Although the subject matter is related, each book spotlights a different particle. In addition, one book describes the Large Hadron Collider, the world's largest particle accelerator.

Separately, the books are useful for science reports and research. Together, they weave a remarkable and exciting story of discovery that takes readers to the limits of human knowledge of the very small and, surprisingly, the very large.

Its predecessor series, the Library of Subatomic Particles, also received high praise from reviewers.

Maren Ostergard of Bellevue Regional Library, WA, wrote in School Library Journal, October, 2004:
Each of these books provides a thorough overview of its subject.... Well annotated, the graphics are a welcome supplement to the texts.... [E]specially useful for reluctant readers.... Excellent additions [to grade 7-12 library collections] for research and reports.

And Larry G. Evans wrote in Science Books and Films (vol. 41, no. 3):
...These books do a good job of describing the process of scientific discovery, the uncertainties involved, and the unlikely results that can occur. Throughout the volumes are nice stories about how experiments and the difficulty in interpreting them can lead to new theories, which then need to be tested with new experiments.... Highly Recommended
