Murray Gell-Mann
The Quark and the Jaguar
1994

Murray Gell-Mann, the Nobel-Prize-winning scientist who coined the term "quark," has done his most influential work in the field of particle physics, but this book is not a treatise on quantum mechanics so much as it is a tour through the mind of the author. A complex and challenging book, it will take you from rainforest to laboratory, through history and across the atom, and in the end it will change the way you see the world.
