Format: Hardcover
Krane's book covers everything you need to know (and more) for an undergraduate nuclear physics course. The layout is clear and the subject material is explained well. There are also plenty of good diagrams using real experimental data, although these can sometimes be hard to understand. There is also a fair bit on experimental setups which may or may not be useful - depends on your course. Krane not only covers nuclear physics but also has good chapters on particle physics - mesons, Feynman diagrams, quarks...you name it, it's in Krane!

The basic guideline of this book is clarity. It is deserves most attention to introduce basic ideas of nuclear physics: nuclei's properties and forces are treated well, facing the main properties, then introducing the basic models and decays' rules. Later, it explains the principles of reactors, and at last a readable introduction to particle physics. All topics are treated from an experimental point of view, with abundant data, and of course, figures. Don't look for complicated maths or advanced topics. You can expect from this book a good introduction to nuclear physics. I liked it much than Segre's one; they are thinked for the same audience, but I think the basic facts are here clearer for a student. No previous quantum mechanics knowledge is needed, too (if needed, are in the first and second chapters). Of course, it is thought for undergraduate physics or engineers.

This was one of the few books I enjoyed reading for my physics undergraduate course, back in the late 90s. It's well written, clear and goes in to plenty of detail, without being written in a needlessly academic style. Recommended.

This book is my 2nd choice book for reference. It is laden with graph, tables, equation, detailed explanation. It may get too much from time to time, so i would recommend to try to find another book with a much simpler approach to complement it. This is hard core, not really for self teaching!!

An absolutely amazing book. I used this a lot through out my degree so far and probably will continue to use it for a long time. It starts with fundamental knowledge and carries on building on it. Highly recommended

Comprehensive inoduction to Nuclear Physics, and is consider a "bible" for the subject. You'll often find yourself dipping into Krane for a recap on nuclear physics toipics

one of the best texts about nuclear physics, it can be used for graduation courses of lower and higher level. it provides both basis and deepening in the topics, which result very satisfactory for the student

Got this for my introduction to nuclear physics module at university. It has just about everything that was in the course. Can read this from front to back to get a very clear introduction of nuclear physics. Obviously, this is not an advanced book and for higher level modules/courses you will required additional information.
