Statistical mechanics textbooks?
I'm searching for a statistical mechanics textbook. It should be roughly at or above the advanced undergraduate level, have a decent set of problems, be reasonably thorough, and be ideal for self-study. I would be grateful for any recommendations.

I think "Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics" by C. Garrod is pretty good. It treats statistical mMechanics and thermodynamics as an application of probability theory. It helps if you have a decent understanding of classical thermodynamics.
