Quantum What are your thoughts on Manoukian's QFT textbooks?

  1. Aug 5, 2017 #1
    Hello!
    Manoukian's two books on Quantum Field Theory seem pretty good to me, but before buying them I would like to know your thoughts about them! Bear in mind that I need a pedagogical textbook(with good exercises if possible).
    Thanks!

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    The books do not look very pedagogical to me.

    Well, I'd prefer good physics. Books trying to be pedagogical tend to be confusing ;-).

    What kind of textbooks would you suggest then?

    I'd start with

    M. D. Schwartz, Quantum field theory and the Standard Model, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, New York, 2014.

    Yeah, that would be my choice too.
    I have studied a few sections of it and found it to be better than the other standard texts on QFT of the same level(I have not been through Weinberg's QFT books yet though; I liked his book on General Relativity and Cosmology though)
