    I just completed a class taught from Huang It was rocky If this is your first time through a serious stat mech class, you have difficulty with thermodynamics, or you are the sort of person that learns by doing, then this probably isn t the book for you.That being said, if you have a strong background in stat mech and thermo, you ll probably find Huang quite enlightening Huang s approach isn t the most pedagogically sound, but he is insightful than most In the sense of what he presents, not necessarily how he presents it Additionally, while there are errors in the book, there aren t so many that it makes it unreadable the book is hard to read based on its own construction.I managed to do well in the course, but it was by constantly referencing other books If this is your first time through, I recommend reading the material of the current chapter in another book first, running a couple of example problems from that book, and then reading through Huang It seemed to work better as a reference into usually uncovered topics than as a textbook The first few chapters on thermodynamics and non quantum statistical mechanics are probably best learned from another source.

    I love this book because it covers almost all the concept in graduate level Statistical Mechanics I love this book very much.

    In my 18 years of formal education, this is the worst textbook I have ever used in any subject His writing style is awful, the book is littered with typos, his notation is completely different from any I ve ever seen, and attempting the homework problems is similar to trying to write an essay in Korean with only a travel guidebook as a reference Even the paper and cover is of substandard quality If you are an instructor and are reading this, for the love of god, DON T USE THIS FOR YOUR COURSE.

    The book is dated and the write up is not clear enough for students I have used it over the years as a text reference etc and it is not worth the money.
