Synopsis

Using LEGO (R) blocks to create a uniquely visual and clear depiction of the way our universe is put together. This is the perfect introduction to the enigmatic and fascinating world of Quantum Physics.



Our story starts with the Big Bang, and along the way, the constructs and interactions within and among atoms and sub-atomic particles, and the forces that play upon them, are clearly explained, with each LEGO (R) block representing a different atomic or sub-atomic particle. The different colours and size denote what that particle is and its relationship with the other 'building blocks'.



Each chapter is presented in digestible chunks, using toy building blocks to illustrate the ideas and experiments that have led to some of the biggest discoveries of the past 150 years.



Soon you'll be able to construct every element in the Universe using a box of LEGO (R) and this book!

Customer Reviews

Fascinating but challenging. Having studied A level physics many years ago I was looking for an accessible book to give an over view of the standard model . This book fitted the the bill with it's use of familiar colourful plastic building bricks providing a tunneling route into the world of quantum physics with out the maths. However, being bombarded by new particles and forces soon left me in a spin and I found I could only digest its contents in small packets. Nature is complicated but that's the way it is, so Dr Still is to be congratulated and thanked for a book that allowed me to add to the bricks of knowledge I own and will hopefully build on in the future.
