From the bestselling authors of Why does E=mc2? comes The Quantum Universe , in which Brian Cox, presenter of the BBC's Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe , and Jeff Forshaw go on a brilliantly ambitious mission to show that everyone can understand the deepest questions of science.

This Top Ten bestseller now contains an updated chapter on the remarkable progress in the search for the Higgs boson particle. But just what is quantum physics? How does it help us understand our amazing world? Where does it leave Newton and Einstein? And why, above all, can we be sure that the theory is good? Here, Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw give us the real science behind the bizarre behaviour of the atoms and energy that make up the universe, and reveal exactly how everything that can happen, does happen.
