Read full description of the books:
I love statistical physics. Hands down, it's one of my favorite physical courses thus far. That said, I picked up Landau & Lifshitz as a complementary book to my regular textbook. I respect the work of both authors very much and I hoped that the book will broaden my knowledge on my favorite subject. Alas, the book has two faults (hence the two stars missing). The writing style of the authors doesn't sit well with me. I had the same problem with their Classical mechanics, so I suppose that the writing of Statistical physics is not a singular occurrence. Not my cup of tea.
The second problem is that the book is very advanced. As an undergraduate student just starting out with my statistical physics course, picking up this book wasn't a good idea. At the time, I was not able to derive expressions and formulas on my own, and I needed a detailed textbook where I could follow the derivations (that require several pages) and read the explanations behind every step. That's over the top for beginners.
