What do you think? Am I missing something? I took this from multiple threads, so many may disagree with some titles in the list. I just believe that we have different tastes and that the list here was made considering the fact that a large number of people like them. I also wanted to include the reason as to why they are recommended, but I kind of got lazy. Heheheheheh. Also, I would like to know what do you think of the following titles:

- Differential Geometry and Lie Groups for Physicists" by Marian Fecko

- Barr: Particle Physics in the LHC Era

- Das Lectures (Graivtation,etc.)

- Cheng: Relativity, Gravitation, and Cosmology, A Basic Introduction

- Donnelly: Foundations of Nuclear and Particle Physics

- Kane: Modern Elementary Particle Physics: Explaining and Extending the Standard Model

- Araki: Mathematical Theory of Quantum Fields

- Chang: Mathematical structures of Quantum Mechanics

- Joos: Theoretical Physics

- Nair: Quantum Field Theory?

- Nearing: Mathematical Tools for Physics

- Ryder: Introduction to Relativity

- Vaughn: Introduction to Mathematical Physics

- Wong: Introduction to Mathematical Physics: Methods & Concepts

I know this list is still incomplete. In fact, I think it will never be complete. But I still like to ask your suggestions and recommendations, like what do you think should we prioritize in the list, and what are good combinations. Also, I like to know your comments on why or why not should they be recommended (maybe comments about their strengths and weaknesses, etc.) This is an attempt to put every questions about recommended books in HEP, QFT, QM, GR, etc. in one thread. I hope to hear from the experts. ^_^

Cheers,
