Comments about this book:

For statistical mechanics, I still think that Landau and Lifshitz volume 5 is the best text I know of. Sethna’s ‘Entropy, Order Parameters, and Complexity’ is really neat, and touches on a lot more modern techniques, but has less real meat, less direct physics, than L&L. After that I think Reichl is probably my favorite, and he does set things up in a nice way, but not as nicely as Sethna. – Posted by madhadron at
