The Standard Model is the most important theory in modern physics. It is the tried-and-true theory of all known physical interactions, with the exception of gravity.

This is not a textbook, but an attempt to advise the general public of what makes up the Standard Model, and subsequently what makes up our universe. It is advisable to have some background in science and, in particular, physics, although it is not essential as Oerter writes well and it is easily understandable (if one can say that about such a broad and deep topic).

I found it interesting, but I do have a background in Maths and Physics. It is an easy read, and one doesn't need to try to follow every argument to its conclusion. There is no deep maths involved as he describes everything in simple, common language and doesn't presume any prior knowledge.

Book is A-format paperback, in excellent condition having only been read once. It is 2006 edition, so predictions and expectations are a little out-of-date, notably in regards to the Higgs Boson which he expects and we have seen has now been discovered.
