"A beautiful exposition of the way modern field theorists think about quantum field theory, packed with insights and physical intuition. Zee's book should be required reading for every serious student of the subject."--Nima Arkani-Hamed, Institute for Advanced Study
This book is much like my impression of Zee himself--extremely engaging and likable.
This book is not only useful for learning QFT, but learning how to write a book on a subject that is considered highly technical.
I especially liked the occasional jabs Zee takes at those types who like to whine about a lack of rigor.
First of all, I would like to note that as this is 2nd Edition of the book, most of the reviews on the first edition certainly also apply to 2nd Edition. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Yu Shi

The formulations are simply just not rigorous enough for me. It relies on instinct and imagination and very little on logic.Published 5 months ago by butsuritsu

This is a very special book that, in my opinion, should be read by any serious student of quantum field theory. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Lev650
This is absolutely *the* book to use as an introduction to the subject. Quantum field theory is an incredibly fascinating subject, but is often quite intimidating, and other books... Read morePublished 17 months ago by K. Shukla

Despite of being a serious QFT text this book reads almost like a novel. It is really enjoyable: I could not put it down. Read morePublished on October 11, 2011 by Fernando Martin Maroto
