An excellent, thoroughly readable and pedagogically excellent introduction to the field, starting from the basics of field quantisation, through some systematics of renormalisation and into an exploration of non-abelian gauge theory, with very good problem sets as well.

There are aspects of the discussion which could use a little more rigour, the most obvious example being the discussion of the renormalisation group, and I would have liked to have seen a more detailed discussion of the renormalis

I think anybody who considers having a carrier in physics in his future life, should have some taste of QFT. This book, has been one of the most popular texts in the field. Nevertheless, I do not recommend it to beginners, unless to somebody with really masochistic temper for the subject. Reading this book has been a mixture of pain and joy to me, as I am sure many others have had the same feelings through this experience. And a note of caution: I don't think one can gain all he needs about QFT ...more

recommended by Ken from QuISU as a gentler introduction to QFT than Weinberg's book
