Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
compare to 'basic notions of condensed matter physics', this book is much easier to understand. u do not need background in solid state physics even. but a thorough mastery of quantum mechanics is assumed. otherwise, u will be turned to ur quantum book very often.

unlike the other solid state or condensed matter book, this book just treat those advanced level materials, like band theory in the presence of pertubrbing fields, elementary excitations, quasi-particles. all those concepts are intruduced in a comprehensive way that i can understand and the materials are arranged systematically (it is partly b/c prof. Anderson does not aim to cover everything in this thin book, just some concepts, as the title indicated).

another interesting thing about this book is that 2 Nobel prizes are related to it. prof. Anderson himself got oone. Sir Josephson, after attending Anderson's lecture in Cambridge with this note (the book is actually lecture note), got a Nobel prize as well.
