This question already has an answer here:
I'm asking for recommendations on an introductory book about the standard model of particle physics. There's a wide berth of styles that can be described as introductory so I'll describe what I'm looking for specifically below.
I'm a fourth year engineering student. So I'm not a physics student but I'm comfortable with math. I've taken several pure physics courses for a minor so I have very basic experience with QM, relativity, and some frontier physics like dark matter, but none of those classes ever touched the standard model. So I'm looking for a book where I can introduce myself to it. I'd like a semi-technical introduction so I can gain some understanding. I don't want to read a book that tries to wow me with snappy one-liners about the origin of the universe like some netflix documentary. At the same time, I would probably get lost in a purely technical textbook. Are there any options in-between?
