Particle physics

  1. Sep 9, 2010 #1
    I've recently finished a course using Griffiths' Intro to Elementary Particles. I'm interested in the subject, but what would you recommend for reading after that? I'm not planning to pursue particle physics or theoretical physics. I've considered Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell by Zee. I don't want any rigorous treatment of QFT. Other ideas are maybe a text on experimental techniques or results or expectations of experiments.

    The reviews on Amazon are disturbingly bad. Are they exaggerating?

    I think they are exaggerating, and it depends on what you are expecting. It seems like many reviewers were required to buy this text for a theoretical course and it turned out to be not so useful. The review by "Eugene" is spot-on:
    But I have to admit I haven't thoroughly read the book myself, perhaps you should take a look with Google's preview.
