Brian Greene, professor of physics and mathematics, Columbia University, and author of The Elegant Universe "Supersymmetry and Beyond is the fascinating account of the search for nature's fundamental building blocks, told by a modern day pioneer. The stakes are high and the story dramatic: if experiments should establish that nature is supersymmetric, we would have finally glimpsed the quantum nature of space and time." David Gross, Nobel Laureate in Physics, and Frederick W. Gluck Chair, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara "A great introduction to the frontiers of modern physics, from the discovery of the Higgs to the prospects for supersymmetry and beyond."


The epic story of the quest to uncover a fully unified theory of physics, revised to reflect the possible discovery of the Higgs Boson.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Less than ethical 3. Mai 2013
Von Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
This is a revised version of an earlier edition published in 2000. It reviews the status of superstring theory in general and supersymmetric gauge theories in particular.

The 2000 edition makes concrete experimental predictions that did not materialize. Rather than comment on why the original predictions have failed, or give a rationale for why we should nonetheless persist in pursuing supersymmetry, the new version simply re-writes these predictions. There is no mention of any earlier failures or any motivation for the updates.

Many examples of this re-writing can be found in


This is not right. In fact, this is embarrassing as it goes against everything that we tell students not to do.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Let's make some money 3. Mai 2013
Von 1/7,000,000,000 - Veröffentlicht auf

I just happened to stumble upon this site and read some interesting comments. The bloger basically says that the ''new'' book is a revision of an older one with the old claims deleted as they were not proved by the experiments.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A well written description, of a discredited theory. 3. Mai 2013
Von Christopher Haynes - Veröffentlicht auf
Dr Kane has written one of the clearest descriptions of string theory and supersymetry available to the layman. His language and style in explaining these difficult concepts is engaging and enlightening. From the viewpoint of one with a modest formal education, supplemented by industrial experience, no other author has come close to his achievement in explaining advanced physics. It is because of this splendid exposition that this book deserves a high rating.

Unhappily, the last decades have seen a consistent failure, through multiple generations of more powerful and costly accelerators, to obtain any of his predicited experimental confirmation of his theories. His continued enthusiam for this failed project is remeniscent of Blondlot's N-rays. His failure to even mention these experimental failures is glaring. Perhaps he hopes it will make his book sales better.

For Dr Kane to promote his book is one thing, but the system itself is broken when leading scientists praise him as he sweeps the unwelocme facts under the rug. One reads claims that scientists are open to adverse data, but admitting mistakes is not how human nature works. Thus the gushing editorial reviews of Professors Brian Greene and David Gross are remarkable. One can sympathize with these once revered scientists, who have grown old to find they wasted their careers (however comfortable), and other people's dollars, on string theory. But one wonders, why are they in denial, and in 2013, who are they still trying to kid?

1.0 von 5 Sternen Terrible Book 2. Februar 2014
Von Mike Baker - Veröffentlicht auf
I picked up this book because it promised to tie supersymmetry to Higgs physics and I put it down due to the terrible writing and obvious errors.

The author did produce some clear and concise paragraphs in each chapter, but other paragraphs were rambling streams of consciousness with no coherence and often with grammatical mistakes. Some analogies were downright incorrect; the earth going around the sun explains the seasons, not the appearance of the sun every morning in the east. Further to this, the author's grasp on physics seems to be lacking at times, mixing up Special and General relativity phenomena and he was not once succinct about the parts of the Standard Model and never showed a full description of supersymmetry particles.

The author claims that compacted M Theory predicted the exact mass of the Higgs boson, but does not offer any proof of this or a direct reference. I mistakenly thought this book was about supersymmetry not M/String theory.

There are good books on supersymmetry, this is not one. I could not finish it and did not find anything useful about Higgs physics in the parts I read, only vague claims of predictions.
