Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley for review purposes.
There is no mention of Higgs or of the W/Z bosons. CERN gets gets a total of five sentences. This is so because the science in these essays has been left far behind in the dust of the exciting advances in theory and experimental high-energy physics that have occurred in the past twenty years. Granted, her focus is on Einsteinian physics, and not the quantum world of Heisenberg and Planck, but the two worlds are becoming inextricably mixed.
Amazingly, there is no mention whatever of the Webb and its incredible potential.
A large portion of her book is devoted to describing the slights and indignities that female scientists had to deal with in the past.
Stick with her "Einstein's Unfinished Symphony" or Dressler's "Voyage to the Great Attractor" instead.
