    Hi, I'm going to study this myself. I wonder if anyone can suggest me a book covering both thermal and statistical physics book, undergrad level. Thanks.

    I think Heat and Thermodynamics: an Intermediate Textbook by Zemansky and Dittman is a good book. It covers both thermodynamics and statistical mechanics at an introductory level.

    You posted this in the wrong forum. There is a forum for textbook discussion at the top of the forum list.

    From my experience, there aren't very many great thermo/stat mech books at the undergrad level. But I've heard
    Fundamentals of Statistical and Thermal Physics by Reif is a good text. I haven't worked through it myself, however.
