This aside, I must say that this book is filled with fascinating, sometimes a bit unorthodox, insights not only into QCD, but also into all of quantum field theory itself (for example, take his wonderful chapter on path integrals in QM, which stands very well all on its own, or the intriguing viewpoints on gauge fields and their quantization, or especially on his exceedingly compact, elegant, simple, and yet philosophically complete treatment of radiative corrections and in particular on Wilson's ideas on renormalization).Although this book is not filled with a great deal of phenomenology, I do not think this is the point of the book; it, for me at least, is a profoundly philosophical text on QCD, in other words food for the mind and the soul.
