This is the best introduction to plasma physics I've ever come across. I've read it cover to cover and can heartily recommend it to anybody who needs to learn the basics from scratch.

Fantastic introduction to plasma physics with magnetic confinement for the purpose of nuclear fusion reactions. It assumes knowledge of mathematics and physics.

Recommends it for: Physicists
The book is ok. It's a bit too friendly with the reader and it has too many references to applications for my tastes. Overall, though, it's a good text.
