Present at the creation is a highly accessible introduction to particle physics, quantum mechanics and the history of CERN. Very enjoyable, with enough physics background to explain latest research without getting lost in technical detail.
Very much recommend. Seymour's characters feel real and are inbuilt with the complexities, vices, emotion and doubts that drive and cripple us. It's not that the story has twists and turns that makes it so interesting. You feel with the characters at every step and just have to keep listening.
Demille grabs you from the opening sequence and hold you for the remainder of the book. Interestingly this pre 911 story has many insights into middle eastern culture, politics and terrorism that are very relevant today. Looking forward to the sequel.
