While browsing random websites, I was offered an ad promoting a new book by an author we already know well. It's no one else than Germany's answer to Peter Woit and Lee Smolin, Herr Alexander Unzicker.
He released a new minibook (160 pages, available both in Kindle edition and in paperback) on October 6th,
The Higgs Fake: How Particle Physicists Fooled the Nobel CommitteeCool. I must praise him for being able to predict that the Nobel prize would be awarded for the Higgs boson in 2013.
Unzicker has created a special website of the book and if you click at the amazon.com link on the left side, you may be the first person in the world who buys the book.
The advertisements say that Einstein would have hated the Higgs mechanism. The 2013 prize makes him turn in his grave.
You may see that even when it comes to übercrackpots, Germany is more than competitive. Unzicker gives the physics haters exactly what they need: low-brow attacks against some of the most important and most safely established insights of modern physics.
American counterparts of Unzicker, crackpots like Lee Smolin and Peter Woit, could also publish an anti-Higgs book like that because their skulls are the same stinky cesspools as Unzicker's skull. But they're also cowards. They don't want to reveal that they really hate everything about modern physics, like Unzicker does, because their strategy is to maintain a layer of would-be moderate imbeciles who keep on listening to the lies and other junk that they produce and who provide the Shmoits with a protective layer. Peter Woit are imbeciles and liars and opportunist cowards at the same moment which is why they aren't publishing books against the Higgs, quarks, electron, or the round Earth, for that matter.
For Czech readers only: My article about the IPCC report in the October 2013 Václav Klaus Institute Newsletter is now out: PDFIf someone buys and reads the book, he or she may guest blog about it here.
The second edition of The Elegant Universe (in my translation) will be out in 2-3 weeks. More info about the book.
