A lot of previous books either discuss the subject at a too-elementary level throughout, or are graduate texts themselves that assume an undergraduate-level introduction to the subject.
Xian Long marked it as to-read Mar 12, Elizabeth Aedyn River marked it as to-read Mar 14, Mechancs unique feature of the book is the development of entropy based on Boltzmann’s definition; this avoids contradictions or ad hoc corrections found in other texts. This, conversely, is written quite pedagogically a big plus for meby someone with a deep and tremendously insightful understanding of statistical mechanics.
