This book explains the ideas and techniques of statistical mechanics-the theory of condensed matter-in a simple and progressive way. The text starts with the laws of thermodynamics and simple ideas of quantum mechanics. The conceptual ideas underlying the subject are explained carefully; the mathematical ideas are developed in parallel to give a coherent overall view.

Roger Bowley and Mariana Sanchez, Introductory statistical mechanics, Oxford Science Publications, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 2001,ISBN-13: 978-0198505761. Statistical mechanics connects the properties of the macroscopic material world to the basic constituents of matter at the deepest level. In this course we will study the interactions that govern the behavior of ensembles of atomic or molecular systems. These laws are statistical in nature, and the notion of probability will play an essential role.

In a simple and progressive way, this book explains the ideas and techniques of statistical mechanics. Most other books of the same subject tend to be dry and unappealing and undergraduates find themselves confused with the difficult maths presented. This is indeed a tricky subject toexplain and techniques doing so are often complicated. However this book starts with the laws of thermodynamics and simple ideas of quantum mechanics and the reader is led through progressively more complex problems with all the mathematical detail explained. This will be a much welcomed book byall physics and chemistry undergraduates studying the subject

You cannot beat this book for help reviewing for prelims or comps. The problems are typical of what you would find on a stat mech prelim, and the answers are in the back of the book. Combine this with Schoeder's An Introduction to Thermal Physics for a total Thermo + Stat Mech course.
The book is also very helpful during grad-level Stat Mech courses. It makes a great companion to Pathria's Statistical Mechanics, Second Edition.

I found this book to be a great introduction to statistical mechanics. The thermodynamic chapters (which are mostly at the very beginning and very end of the book) left a lot to be desired. The authors did, however, relate stat mech ideas back to thermo topics, which helped motivate the subject. Finally, I would not recommend this book to be used as a self-study book. I read the chapters before the lectures and found that I repeatedly needed the lecture information (i.e. info not in the book) in order to the do the homework problems.

I recommend this book to anyone who is taking an undergraduate course in stat mech. I also recommend it to beginning GRADUATE students of stat mech. I used it for my own graduate coursework and I found it to be extremely helpful.
This book provides a clean, uncluttered presentation of the principles of stat mech; does not lose sight of the physical reasons behind the mathematical manipulations; and most helpful of all, contains a good set of problems WITH SOLUTIONS! It has been more helpful to me in my graduate work than any graduate-level book!
In a next edition, maybe the authors can include a gentle introduction to the new renormalization group theory of phase transitions, and also increase the number and depth of problems.
If you plan on studying stat mech, get this book.
