This book has been written to give to the reader a physical understanding of the subject and of the logic behind the mathematical methods generally used in the context of thermal physics.
Surely someone already trained in (statistical) thermodynamics will even more enjoy the reading of this book.
The book is short, easy to read and not expensive (a quality which is not negligible for a science book). For my opinion it is a little jewel.
