"...an extremely valuable compendium of standard-model results and is strongly recommended as a reference to active researchers and to students and teachers of high-energy physics at the graduate level." Physics Today
A graduate-level description of how the theory of electroweak interactions, or so-called "Standard Model" unifies the weak and electromagnetic forces of nature in high energy physics.
Inside This Book(Learn More)
One of the main objectives of physics is to find out what, if any, are the basic constituents of matter and to understand the nature of the forces by which they interact. Read the first page

Where this book really shines is in it's global treatement of all quantum mechanics. I particularly like Chapter 2 (the building blocks of quantum field theory) which touches on topics as diverse as the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, group theory, classical electromagnetism, and resonance particles; and Chapter 10 (the standard model and beyond) which touches on grand unified theories, supersymmetry and superstrings. Another highlight is Section 9.3 which describes neutrino oscillations. This book contains information on all the major particles, all the major equations for spin 0, 1/2 & 1 particles, Feynman rules for interactions, quantum electrodynamics and quantum chromodynamics as well as the "electroweak" of the title.
I compared this book with 3 other good books on advanced quantum mechanics and this one was by far the most comprehensive.
