The Theory of Almost Everything: The Standard Model, the Unsung Triumph of Modern Physics
The book starts somewhat slowly, explaining at a very basic level special and general relativity, and (quantum) wave mechanics, but then gets to the right level in explaining the development and the current state of particle physics. No mathematical expressions (both good and bad), but a basic use of Feynman diagrams, which was exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended for someone who wants to understand what particle physics is all about.
