Robert Cahn, Berkeley Lab’s former Physics Division Director, and colleague Chris Quigg (Fermilab) have released a new book entitled Grace in All Simplicity: Beauty, Truth, and Wonders on the Path to the Higgs Boson and New Laws of Nature.

In his review, former Berkeley Lab Director and Nobel laureate Steven Chu states, “In Grace in All Simplicity, Cahn and Quigg share with us their ring-side view of the discoveries that led to our current picture of our most fundamental physical laws. Ironically, the path taken that led to our emerging view of the Universe is neither simple or graceful, but spell-binding and charming in all its human complexities.”

Cahn will be giving talks on his new book at local bookstores in Berkeley on Thursday, November 9, and in Orinda on Saturday, November 11.
