Item description for Solid State Physics by Mircea S. Rogalski & Stuart B. Palmer...
Written with advanced undergraduate students and graduates in mind, the purpose of his book is to treat the fundamental principles in sufficient detail to bring out the coherent framework of the subject, providing a physical as well as mathematical understanding of a wide range of phenomena in solid state physics. The student is assumed to have completed standard university courses in classical and statistical mechanics, electromagnetism, calculus and to have grasped the basics of quantum mechanics up to perturbation theory. Solid State Physics opens with the adiabatic approximation to the many-body problem of a system of ions and valence electrons. After chapters on lattice symmetry, structure and dynamics, it then proceeds with four chapters devoted to the single-electron theory of the solid state. Semiconductors and dielectrics are covered in depth and chapters on magnetism and superconductivity follow. The book concludes with a chapter on solid surfaces. Every section is followed by s

Competent job as an intro graduate text Jun 6, 2004
A good follow-on book if you have already used Ashcroft and Mermin's Solid State Physics book, or Kittel's introductory book. Some duplicate material compared to those two books. But this takes you a little further into superconductivity, for example. The treatment of which is the classic Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory.
At the graduate level, it is probably a first year text. Nothing here gets you to the research frontier. But it is a good grounding.
You should find the writing clear enough. The authors seem to have spent some time polishing the prose.
