'An excellent and timely introduction to a wide range of topics concerning physics beyond the standard model, by one of the most dynamic researchers in the field. Dine has a gift for explaining difficult concepts in a transparent way. The book has wonderful insights to offer beginning graduate students and experienced researchers alike.' Nima Arkani-Hamed, Harvard University
'How many times did you need to find the answer to a basic question about the formalism and especially the phenomenology of general relativity, the Standard Model, its supersymmetric and grand unified extensions, and other serious models of new physics, as well as the most important experimental constraints and the realization of the key models within string theory? Dine's book will solve most of these problems for you and give you much more, namely the state-of-the-art picture of reality as seen by a leading superstring phenomenologist.' Lubos Motl, Harvard University
'This book gives a broad overview of most of the current issues in theoretical high energy physics. It introduces and discusses a wide range of topics from a pragmatic point of view. Although some of these topics are addressed in other books, this one gives a uniform and self-contained exposition of all of them. The book can be used as an excellent text in various advanced graduate courses. It is also an extremely useful reference book for researchers in the field, both for graduate students and established senior faculty. Dine's deep insights and broad perspective make this book an essential text. I am sure it will become a classic. Many physicists expect that with the advent of the LHC a revival of model building will take place. This book is the best tool kit a modern model builder will need.' Nathan Seiberg, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton
'Particle physics is about to enter a new era with the start up of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This book provides a broad and well-founded introduction to the main theoretical concepts ... The comprehensive list of state-of-the-art topics presented makes Dine's book an almost unique text. The parts on supersymmetry and string theory especially contain a wealth of material, often showing deep physical insight. ... a valuable resource for anybody who learns and teaches particle physics. For the active researcher it also provides the tools necessary to develop new models in an exciting area of physics.' The Observatory
