Item description for Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics by Ashok Das & Thomas Ferbel...
The original edition of Introduction to Nuclear and Particle Physics was used with great success for single-semester courses on nuclear and particle physics offered by American and Canadian universities at the undergraduate level. It was also translated into German, and used overseas. Being less formal but well-written, this book is a good vehicle for learning the more intuitive rather than formal aspects of the subject. It is therefore of value to scientists with a minimal background in quantum mechanics, but is sufficiently substantive to have been recommended for graduate students interested in the fields covered in the text.

Misleading Ad Apr 23, 2007
The ad conveniently hides the fact that this is a solutions manual for the author's text and does not link to the text book. What a rip off.
Weak on the standard model! May 16, 2000
I used this book for a 3rd year university course in subatomic physics. What I particularly liked was the two chapters on symmetries, which were thorough compared to what i have seen in comparable textbooks. I also found the chapters on nuclear physics quite good, as they gave a very compact presentation of the most important aspects of this subject. The weakest part of the book in my opinion is the chapter on the standard model.
If you don't know math and quantum mechanics you shouldn't buy this book as it is somewhat mathematical in style and uses fewer words than many comparable textbooks. Readers who want a historical treatment of the subject matter should look elsewhere too, as this book tells little about the experiments that were instrumental in developing subatomic physics.
