What is a good book to learn particles?

    I'm interested in learning about standard model, and particles. What's a good book to learn from? I have taken some college physics classes.

    This depends on your exact level of knowledge in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. A relatively basic book is Griffith's Introduction to Particle Physics.

    Note that "relatively basic" books in particle physics still assumes that one has taken at least an upper division sequence in quantum mechanics.
