I am looking for a decent book (probably a textbook) that covers the standard model in its entirety (not necessarily in its vast detail, though). I am a physics undergrad in my 4th year, so I'm looking for something that gets into specific math and theory, but obviously not something that would be too over my head (a bit over my head is fine, i like a challenge!). I have taken introductory material to quantum dynamics, but not much. Im also adept at calculus and differential equations. Please let me know!

My two suggestions are Introduction to Elementary Particles by David Griffiths
http://www.amazon.com/IntroductionE...ref=pd_sim_b_1 and An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics by W. N. Cottingham and D. A. Greenwood http://www.amazon.com/IntroductionS...ref=pd_sim_b_1.
