Publisher’s Description: 
A modern voyage of discovery. Frank Wilczek, Nobel Laureate, author of The Lightness of Being

The Higgs boson is one of our eras most fascinating scientific frontiers and the key to understanding why mass exists. The most recent book on the subject, The God Particle, was a bestseller. Now, Caltech physicist Sean Carroll documents the doorway that is openingafter billions of dollars and the efforts of thousands of researchers at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerlandinto the mind-boggling world of dark matter. The Particle at the End of the Universe has it all: money and politics, jealousy and self-sacrifice, history and cutting-edge physicsall grippingly told by a rising star of science writing.
