One attractive feature of Perkins' book is that each chapter ends with a concise summary of its most important items. Perkins writes exceptionally clearly and includes a significant number of worked examples, making this an ideal textbook for use in a junior or senior course that introduces particle theory and cosmology and their strong interrelationship.

Not for the layman. Finish college physics first. Then, yes.

Only for brainiacs. Don't try this if you haven't finis college physics. But, if you have, then by all means.

Bought this book a little while ago to help me with an article I wrote in one of the local popular science magazines. I have only read parts of it (that concerned the article metioned above) and found it to be quite readable and well structured. I was not a great fan of the authors previous book - Introduction to High Energy Physics - as a postgraduate student since I felt that it lacked the depth I was looking for, so I was a bit skeptical concerning this book as well. Nevertheless, it was of great help to me and the parts that I read were well written. This is not a "heavy" book and it could prove to be of interest for readers with a background in university level Physics without needing a lot of Maths to understand the concepts.
