Atom: Journey Across the Subatomic Cosmos is a non-fiction book by Isaac Asimov. It was initially published on May 31, 1991 by Dutton Adult. In it, Asimov presents the atom and subatomic particles in a historical context, beginning with Democritus's original thought experiments and theory of atomism, and ending with then-current knowledge of the fundamental particles. The book is separated into twelve chapters, plus the index.

Everyone should read this book. It will take about a day (longer if you earmark parts you want to read again).
I have read the book many times . . . . and given many copies away to people whom I feel will expand their appreciation for how we came to discover many of the the things we know about atoms and their parts. Truly a remarkable book, written by a man by who clearly loved the subject. The good news is, he wrote many books. I've read them all . . . science fiction included. Had I not done that, I now realize I would have missed a lot of interesting stuff. If you would like to read it but can't afford it, send me an email and I'll have amazon send you one at my expense. I'll expect a thank you note after you read it the first time. Atoms are pretty small . . but very fascinating. The book Isaac Asimov wrote about the men and women who found ways to look and learn about them is quite amazing. I'm sure Richard Feynman found it so . . . . so will you. You will likely read it more than once, and search for other Asimov books. You won't be disappointed. [email protected]

This book is an excellent summation of the progress made in discovering sub-atomic particles, It may not now be up to date (it was printed in 1991), but I would not forgo the learning within, or the Asimov method of presenting it. Isaac Asimov specialty was explaining difficult subjects to his readers. He did an admiral job keeping the subject matter interesting. Each short chapter is dedicated to a particle, ex. mesons, quarks, bosons. Each chapter also gives a little historical background of the search and discovery behind each particle and how it fits within the sub-atomic world. Nuclear physicists may have progressed far beyond this by now, but this is still a good book for piecing together the subatomic puzzle of particles.

I've read a lot of popular science books and the first half or so of this book was mostly a repeat of things that I've already read. But the last two chapters are amazing. He has a way of explaining things that makes it clear and interesting, and also of telling the story of the discovery, and the initial reactions to assertions. His side comments will make you laugh out loud and his explanations will help you come to an understanding of the topic.

An excellent review of particle physics for someone interested in the subject. Asimov is an excellent writer, of course, and he gives good historical perspective of the accomplishments made by physicists throughout the centuries. Becoming a little dated as physics continues to march forward. But an excellent non-math review of particle physics at the high school level. Highly recommend.

Very easy to read. Asimov is always great.

Read yrs ago, still good

As always, Isaac does not obviate little details that turn to be important for the understanding of the subjet. I recomend this book for those who love physics. The emphasis is in how the puzzle of the subatomic world knowledge evolved and the imaginative minds that had built current knowledge.

Came in perfect condition. Couldn't be happier.
