Atom: Journey Across the Subatomic Cosmos
The legendary Isaac Asimov starts what is perhaps the finest of all his books with a simple query: How finely can a piece of matter be divided? But like many simple questions, this one leads readers on a far-flung quest for a final answer, a search that encompasses such fascinating phenomena as light and electricity and their components--strange but real bits of matter that challenge our assumptions about the very nature of time and space. 40 illustrations.

Review: Atom: Journey Across the Subatomic CosmosUser Review - Ron Joniak - Goodreads
Asimov does a wonderful job of logically analyzing what occurs in an atom from the basic electron-proton-neutron configuration down to the leptons, muons, tauons, and so forth. He ends the book with an excellent discussion on the expanding universe and how things may end. Enjoyable read. Read full review
