Fake Science 101, available for pre-order at just $10.39, has a full paragraph about the boson!
Fabiola Gianotti is the spokeperson of the ATLAS collaboration, that announced on July 2012 the discover of a new boson that is like a Higgs boson.

The new boson became music!
The sonification of the ATLAS’ data was made by Domenico Vicinanza in collaboration with Mariapaola Sorrentino and Giuseppe La Rocca
Higgs: beyond “to be or not to be”
Physicists on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider have observed a new particle that may be the Higgs boson. In a commentary published just before CERN’s announcement, Joe Incandela, spokesperson for the CMS experiment and professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, answers the question: What happens next?

Signals of new physics in H -> tau tau channels from CMS?
In the image you can see the Higgs -> tau tau: there’s no excess, and all data could be explained with background.
