Particle Information, Curated

With all sorts of different particle mass measurements coming from experiments all over the globe, it's a wonder that anyone can ever agree on the accuracy of any of the measurements. Enter the Particle Data Group. Murray Gell-Mann and Art Rosenfeld started compiling particle masses in 1957 and since then it's grown to a 320+ page monstrosity of particle information. The whole thing is probably a little dense for the coffee table, but perhaps just the summary section would be appropriate?
