Seule remarque critique : le passage sur les diagrammes de Feynman est curieusement obscur ; ce qui conduit à ces diagrammes est superbement décrit ; les règles de constitution sont sans ambigüité mais..... on ne comprend pas les différents schémas qui en sont tirés même en se cassant la tête. C'est très dommage , d'autant plus que Zee insiste sur le fait qu'il FAUT comprendre en détail l'obtention de ces diagrammes si on veut pouvoir aller de l'avant . Globalement ce livre est un petit miracle ; je le recommande sans hésitation à tout étudiant en physique théorique et à tout mathématicien quel que soit sa spécialité ultérieure

I made the mistake of choosing Zee as my first book for studying Quantum Field Theory. Although Zee does a good job laying a sort of intuitive groundwork for Quantum Field Theory, and building up to a basic explanation of Feynman integrals and Feynman diagrams, after about twenty pages I was completely lost. Only after reading half of Ryder's Quantum Field Theory and a quarter of Peskin and Schoeder's An Introduction To Quantum Field Theory (Frontiers in Physics) had I acquired the necessary background for making my way halfway through Zee.
I am happy to have bought and studied Zee, and consider the book to be valuable and useful--it should just not be your first book on QFT--or even your second!
If you are a casual reader, you won't understand page 1.
If you are an undergraduate, you won't understand past page 10.
If you are a graduate who hasn't started QFT, you won't understand past page 20.
If you are taking QFT, you won't understand the material he is talking about until after you learned it in your course. This book won't help you learn because most of the things you would get caught on, Zee skips and assumes you will do it on your own time. The salient pieces of information that are the important results he shows, but he doesn't explain how to get there.
If you know QFT already, this book is an absolute treat and amazingly fun read.
A MUCH better job is done in his newer book, Einstein Gravity in a Nutshell. It teaches VERY well and still maintains the conversational and fun aspects of this book.
I feel that this book is highly overrated due to the fact that once you do understand it, it's as much fun of a book to read in all of physics. But until you are done with two years of graduate school, it's useless. It's a QFT book that can't be used until you already know QFT.
Zee's QFT textbook is an absolute pleasure on many levels. For learning quantum field theory of course. For giving readers the feeling of learning at a very high level, of seeing how great minds work (Feynman's logical and brilliant extension of screens with holes in them, from finite to infinite) and thus helping our minds look at problems from different perspectives. For reminding the reader at every step that learning is an activity for the student, not a passive acceptance of ideas and equations. I think this is the part that is most helpful, the engagement with the reader, the encouragement to think things through for ourselves. And all the while going through quantum field theory at a very fundamental and conceptual level. I wish that he would write a book about every physics topic that is hard to grapple with, because I would not feel that there were ideas and steps I just had to accept, which didn't actually seem inevitable or even understandable to me.
I'm currently using Robert Klauber's "Student friendly Quantum field theory" text. Three weeks with that book has done much more for me than 3 years with this one did, ditto for even just the free samples I printed out from the author's website prior to purchasing the full text.
I have a strong feeling this book will be useful - maybe even highly so - once I've gone through a few more chapters of Klauber's text, but looking at the bang I got for the bucks I paid, I can't honestly rate this book higher than 3 stars.
containing solutions to selected exercises. Finally, it is pleasant to see material at this level presented with a warm sense of humor. I wish this book had been available when I was
My only adverse comment is that the book could be better still if it didn't spend half a dozen or so pages at the beginning extolling its own praises.
