"This book grew out of lecture notes and courses, and was prepared and polished over the last six years. Long-awaited, it is carefully prepared in a pedagogical style, with selected themes and progressive difficulty. It presents a broad overview of the field with modern tools and elaborate techniques, culminating with deep results and fascinating pictures. However, the author succeeds in also making it nice to read and easy to handle, keeping the style as direct as possible..."

A self-contained graduate-level introduction to the statistical mechanics of disordered systems. In three parts, the book treats basic statistical mechanics; disordered lattice spin systems; and latest developments in the mathematical understanding of mean-field spin glass models. It assumes basic knowledge of classical physics and working knowledge of graduate-level probability theory.
