Most people struggle with understanding what exactly is entropy, what is the chemical potential, etc. This book does a very good job explaining how these are all related. You won't find advanced topics like the two-dimensional Ising model, but that's because this book isn't made for that. It's not a graduate level textbook. If you are looking for those types of topics, this is the wrong book. This book is for understanding the basic foundations of statistical mechanics and seeing how they are related to basic concepts like pressure, chemical potential, and temperature that the reader learned from chemistry courses or the like. Use this book to build intuition and to solve some classic "textbook problems" in statistical mechanics to prepare for more advanced textbooks.
