Best Plasma physics textbooks suggestions

  • Thread starter Hercuflea
  • Start date
Hey all,

I'm looking for a good introductory book (I've had Physics 1 and 2, some thermo and modern) on plasmas because I will be doing research this summer in plasma physics. I have heard Francis Chen's "Introduction to Plasma Physics" is a good start. Any reviews on this book?
