Statistical Mechanics, by Ben Widom

Statistical Mechanics, coverI love Dr. Benjamin Widom’s writing style. This recent book by him is an excellent introduction to the topic of statistical mechanics. The subtitle, A Concise Introduction for Chemists, makes clear some previous knowledge of quantum mechanics, thermodynamics is needed. And some spectroscopy, not much. A new classic, to shelve along Molecular Theory of Capillarity (by B. Widom and J. S. Rowlinson).
