Overall, it is a great book for biochemists/molecular biologists and is perhaps an ideal preparation for doing some advanced stat-mech. I also encourage of the readers to check out some of the other teaching resources by the same author, a statistical biophysics blog and an online textbook.
Anyway, this isn't a review of the Dill book -- the comparison is just to say that that's the only other book I'm aware of that's really at all comparable, and the two are for different audiences. This is for a more advanced audience (though not to say too advanced -- a talented undergraduate or beginning graduate student can understand it easily) and is perhaps more thorough and traditional (though not in a bad way), while at the same time bringing Zuckerman's unique talents to the table. Definitely a book I'm going to continue using a lot.
Although it does not bother you with many equations and their derivations, yet it gives you the intuition to understand how an equation is derived and what is the underlying meaning of it.
I love it, and I can not stop reading it, it is attractive; makes you want to read more and more!
Great job, Dr. Zuckerman!
