Recommended to Joecolelife by:
Peskin and Schroeder's book seems to be the standard text for courses in quantum field theory these days. Although somewhat intimidating for the novice, the reader seasoned by reading a good portion of Ryder's book Quantum Field Theory will find himself fairly comfortable. The advantages of the compact (1, sigma) notation used by the authors for Dirac spinors and gamma matrices, although not as immediately transparent as the expressions favored by Ryder, soon become familiar. The use of a more c ...more

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
