520    "The recently celebrated discovery of the Higgs boson has 
       captivated the public's imagination with the promise that 
       it can explain the origins of everything in the universe. 
       It's no wonder that the media refers to it grandly as the 
       'God particle.' Yet behind closed doors, physicists are 
       admitting that there is much more to this story, and even 
       years of gunning the Large Hadron Collider and herculean 
       number crunching may still not lead to a deep 
       understanding of the laws of nature. In this fascinating 
       and eye-opening account, theoretical physicist Alexander 
       Unzicker and science writer Sheilla Jones offer a polemic.
       They question whether the large-scale, multinational 
       enterprises actually lead us to the promised land of 
       understanding the universe. The two scientists take us on 
       a tour of contemporary physics and show how a series of 
       highly publicized theories met a dead end. [They] 
       systematically unpack the recent hot theories such as 
       'parallel universes,' 'string theory,' and 'inflationary 
       cosmology,' and provide an accessible explanation of each.
       They argue that physics has abandoned its evidence-based 
       roots and shifted to untestable mathematical theories, and
       they issue a clarion call for the science to return to its
       experimental foundation."--|cProvided by publisher.
