?A clearly written textbook balancing intuitive understanding and mathematical rigour, emphasizing elementary particle theory.? (Reviews, May 2009)
Contains just the right amount of rigor for me. Other books dumbed it down too much, but this one assumes one has either an undergraduate degree in Physics or some advanced physics... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Tom Mozdzen
No other way to spin it. Griffith's is hands down the best introductory book on particle physics around. Don't waste your time with Perkins.Published 2 months ago by Brandon Rayhaun
High Energy Physics would be fascinating even if it were not constantly in the news but even people with a smattering of Quantum Mechanics and strong quantitative backgrounds in... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Sammy
I ordered this book "NEW" from Amazon and 3 VERY IMPORTANT pages are missing. Missing these pages puts a gap in the material that I cannot fill. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Joule
Griffiths, he's great. If you've read and understood undergrad mechanics, e&m (Griffiths), and quantum mechanics (Griffiths), then you're ready for this book and you'll know what... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Chris K.
The book is thorough covering both gauge theories and scattering/cross section calculations. Suitable for independent study or an advanced undergrad course.Published 7 months ago by John N Cederquist
A good cover-to-cover read. Every physics student should read this book before they take the physics GRE, or even just for fun. Griffiths is awesome. Read morePublished 8 months ago by vnhea
In my 35 years in physics, this is one of the very best textbooks that I have come across. If you’re interested in elementary particle theory, you’ll do yourself a huge favor to... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Bavaruspex
The present review is not about the book; it is about the Standard Model.
The Standard Model is a patchwork; it is a collection of theories under a single name. Read more
