Alternatives to Kittel & Kroemer's "Thermal Physics"?

Hello everyone,
I was wondering if anyone knows of a good book teaching thermal physics /statistical mechanics other than KK. I've found that it is very hard to get a feel of what's going on from that book. Does anyone have any good recommendations?

Thanks,
Vince

Sears and Zemansky et. al. is a decent alternative to Kittel & Kroemer.

Isn't Sears and Zemansky an intro-physics book? Perchance, you meant Sears and Salinger?
