This book is difficult to learn from - largely because there is a severe shortage of quality examples and the material is not well explained throughout.
This is not a good introductory book, though it is quite useful as a reference material after you have some background in solid state physics.
In the first place the book arrive more than 10 days that I expected. The book said that was in hardcover, but instead it came in soft cover in a cheap Indian version. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Paola Rodríguez
This is a basic book for solid state physics. However, this book assumes that the reader has a physics background, so for physicists, it is confusing due to the jumping between... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Asd Iw
After going through Kittel's Thermal Physics book, I was very excited to use this book for my introductory solid state physics class. Read morePublished 11 months ago by SpongeHateWorld
As the title suggest, the text is just OK. It is good to complement a good teacher. Otherwise, if you are relying on it alone, then good luck. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Ali
A VERY VERY GOOD BOOK
I LOVE IT VERY MUCH!
IT INTRODUCE ALL THE THEORY VERY WELL. MY FRIENDS LOVE IT TOO.
This book may (and it is a huge MAY) be a good reference for people who already have a perfect grasp on material, but forgot a point or two. Read morePublished 15 months ago by I. Boyko

This book is the magna carta for Solid State Physics and I've been using it since my undegraduate years (paperback india due to affordability). Read morePublished 17 months ago by Lucias Creed
good . I just want to type it is good, but it needs 19 more words required. The words are enough.Published 18 months ago by mingjinwang
