Statistical Mechanics by McQuarrie. Is it good? I see it has some stuff on fluids which I'm interested in. Give me some feedback on this book, is it worth buying?

How about
A Modern Course in Statistical Physics by Reichl. Has a lot of stuff but I heard mixed reviews. Is this one worth buying?

If anyone owns these books (and read through them) I'd appreciate some feedback.
