My suggestion is to look at the preface and see his suggested sequence. Mine would be 11, 12, 13, 14, then 1-10 in that order.

Not having said that, there are subjects in Statistical Mechanics which need techniques from QFT........

I agree with Dr Transport in general.

But 10. Nuclear Models really only requires the QM series to understand and work through

By the way, are these books any good? They look quite nice but I've never seen them used in classes or recommended by people or anything.

Thank you all! I've read 11. Classical Mechanics: Point Particles and Relativity,and the general part of the 14. Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics,i'll keep reading in your seggested sequence and look for better books.
Are these books no good for teaching myself?

I have most of tehse books and I find tyhem just perfect and surely better than 80% of what you can find on purchase. Those books are in the pure german mathematical tradition and its really hard to find something similar elsewhere as the jewels from French/German mathamatics and physics are not easily accessible.
