    That's hard to answer since there are many good textbooks on stat. phys. around. My favorite to begin with is Landau/Lifshits Vol. V.

    Try finding "Introductory Statistical Mechanics (2nd edition) by Roger Bowley and Mariana Sanchez, Oxford Science Publication". It explains statistical physics concepts clearly and the language is not as technical as many physics books found in the market. Very enjoyable to read and almost every exercise has solution at the back pages of the book.
