By the time you've digested the book's material on abelian and non-abelian gauge theories, you should be convinced that supersymmetry is a truly beautiful theory. However, like string theory there's no experimental data to support supersymmetry, so the question of whether it's all just empty, non-physical mathematical formalism has yet to be answered.
I was a physics major in college, and left the field to raise a family as a computer programmer. These books fill a void I've had ever since, and I recommend them to anyone with reasonable math background interested in deepening their knowledge.
(Actually, if you are obsessed enough on the topic of modern physics, you can gain the math background as well starting at earlier points in the DeMYSTiFieD series. Earnest readers can enter the series just about anywhere from high school math to grad math.)
In addition to fine authors, the editors and publisher deserve praise for supporting this series. All books I've seen are affordable, well-constructed, filled with good material without fluff, and have well-chosen authors.
This book is the book I had been waiting for and I want to congratulate the Demystified series for publishing it. It is suitable for genuine academic use and it does something remarkable: it sheds extra light on Quantum Field Theory along the way. I am still a bit shocked that the best intro text in the field was bought at Borders! Hahahahaa. I have restarted the more classic and impenatrable text by Wess and Bagger now that I have this book under my belt. It feels like I am learning and reviewing the material.
Not only do I reccomend this book for students, but also for physics professors teaching SUSY as a blueprint for the first few weeks of instruction
