Publisher's Summary

Atom Land brings the impossibly small world of particle physics to life, taking listeners on a guided journey through the subatomic world. Listeners will sail the subatomic seas in search of electron ports, boson continents, and hadron islands. The sea itself is the quantum field, complete with quantum waves. Beware dark energy and extra dimensions, embodied by fantastical sea creatures prowling the far edges of the known world.

Your tour guide through this whimsical - and highly instructive - world is Jon Butterworth, leading physicist at CERN (the epicenter of today's greatest findings in physics). Over a series of journeys, he shows how everything fits together and how a grasp of particle physics is key to unlocking a deeper understanding of many of the most profound mysteries - and science's possible answers - in the known universe.

Poor Story telling format !

Format interferes with the science. Confusing and distracting...... and boring to endure. I cannot say enough as to my displeasure of investing in this audiobook.

Metaphor eh book great

The book in itself is worth it but at the beginning and middle of the book when using the metaphor holes come up even only using the knowledge given it. The book is still worth the listen but
