The front cover shows a simulation of the collisions of the lead-ion beams at CERN, as recorded by the detector ALICE. The collisions produce a plasma of quarks and gluons in a sizable volume, with a density greater than that in a neutron star and with a temperature 100 000 times that in the Sun's core. These conditions match those a few microseconds after the big bang beginning of the universe. In our normal low-energy world, quarks and gluons are always locked up inside the confines of particles such as protons and neutrons. However, in the high-energy collisions within ALICE, they undergo deconfinement to produce the plasma, which is a unique state of matter that acts like an ideal fluid with no viscosity. Such was the state of the universe just after the big bang. --This text refers to the Loose Leaf edition.

The homework is inside this book as well, unlike the book(s) by Mazur. (Mazur is an idiot)
Just a note any tablet with screen greater than 8" is best suited.
That does not mean that a tablet with 7" screen will not work, you will have to adjust the view more often to fit what you want to see in that window size.
Why does this matter? On WileyPlus.com, online tutorial is available along with a copy of the textbook on the website! If you want to access it on your tablet or phone, which I don't recommend, you just need to pay $35 more. For $45 after that, you get a physical copy of the book. So why would you spend $230 for no online access, vs $215-220 on WileyPlus.com for the book and online access?
As for the book itself, I have the 1996 (5th vs. 10th) edition, and a lot of the materials has been retained, while other materials were changed or added. I doubt you'll go wrong with an older edition unless you need the problems, which again are available at WileyPlus.
Edit: So after using this book for nearly two semesters, I still stand by what I said before. Everything is explained so clearly, and the order that things are presented makes so much sense. It contains just the right amount of explanations, and knows how to introduce a topic. The figures work really well in helping you understand the topic. Sometimes you might need to reread a section to fully understand it. For example, I had a bit of trouble understanding Gauss' law, but after reading it an extra two or three times, I fully understood it. The book quality is excellent as well.
Advice: Don't just read the chapters, go slow and try to understand everything.
