I am looking forward to study Particle physics on my own. Can someone suggest me a book which I can read and understand by myself?
From the preface to GriffithsParticle physics also interests me. The Griffith book looks really good, but I am not sure whether I am ready for it or not. I am an undergrad and have only taken mechanics, E&M, and some optic/relativity.
Are there any "pre-req" books I should read before this one?
The students typically had under their belts a semester of electromagnetism (at the level of Lorrain and Corson), a semester of quantum mechanics (at the level of Park), and a fairly strong background in special relativity.
