When I picked up this book, I thought I'd be totally traumatized by it (who doesn't know a many-body problem turns you into a many-problem body? raise your hands) oh but who could have thought that such a topic can be written in such an intuitive and interesting and funny way like Mattuck's? A nice introduction into Feynman diagram method with lots of clear and witty explanations, funny how he always desperately tries to convince you how awesome Feynman diagrams are by constantly saying things l ...more
Well, I actually only used this book as second literature in a single course, but it was great for looking up things, and to get a second opinion on different diagrams. Apart from that, I loved the typesetting in this book - it just looks great, even though it's so old.
