You will need to understand some complex variable theory and it is useful to know how the Lagrangian is used in classical mechanics. The path integral approach is then defined and the concept is used to explain many results.
The material is not all technical, but also delves into philospical discussions about a fascinating subject that in so many ways seems to defy common sense. It is guaranteed that you wil gain insight and get many hours of satisfaction from reading this book.
I bought the book having only looked at the chapter list. I should have clicked the "surprise me" link to in order to get a picture of what an actual page of the book looks like. The book's contents are what appears to be a couple of sets of someone's lecture notes. Maybe two or three weeks worth. All equations in the book are written by hand.
Let me repeat. All equations in the book are written by hand. LaTeX editors are free, and there really is no excuse for such a shoddy presentation of material. That the equations in the book are all handwritten is of major significance in the following regard. Had the equations been typeset properly, the book would have been much, much shorter in length, which would hint at the significant lack of content. There is very little text in the book, the vast majority of it is in large, handwritten equations. This is an unfortunate dilution of the material.
The entire amount of material in this book wouldn't even fill a fourth of a chapter of Griffiths, or even an eigth of a chapter of Sakurai. If you don't know those names as references to books on quantum mechanics, then this book will be way beyond your comprehension.
The book has no references.
This review is longer than the book's "chapter" on QED.
I bought this book based on the title and the chapter titles.
Shoddily written, no typesetting, no editing, no references.
Each "Chapter" is a few pages long, written in a badly typeset word processor with ALL calculations presented in less than neat handwriting.
