Save your eyes and get a more modern book with at least a better typesetting.
This is the book to go for those working on molecular simulations and looking for the math background and derivations leading equations of interest.
It is fairly well organized, but there are many assumed steps from one equation to the next, which make the text difficult to follow.
Assumes simplicity when complicated steps are required. Yes, this book is highly regarded as one of the best Stat Mech books out there, but those are by scholars of statistical... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joe Mattson

I bought this book as a reference for a Stat Mech class, but I'm finding it's hard to read unless you already know a lot about statistical mechanics.Published 13 months ago by RC
I purchased this book after I bought quantum chemistry by the same author.
I liked the quantum chemistry book better than this book because It lacks the mathematical details... Read more
I was forced to use this singularly unhelpful book in graduate school. It was written in a terse, indigestible style; contained very few worked problems; left many important... Read morePublished on July 19, 2007 by A.T.R.
