From the reviews:
"This valuable and self-contained presentation of many-body theory is centred on solid state physics and is mainly meant for undergraduate students. ... The book and its various chapters are organized in a detailed and logic way. ... After the presentation of the relevant theoretical tools, models and examples are treated with great care. ... all calculations are performed in extreme detail, and each section is enriched with many exercises, all solved at the end of the book." (Bassano Vacchini, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1187, 2010)
"Primarily directed towards students with a firm background in quantum and statistical mechanics, the book may also assist researchers in getting familiar with the application of second quantized methods and Green's functions to solid state physics. ... the copious amount of self-tests and completely worked out exercises yields a unique textbook for all students and readers who seriously strive to graduate or advance in the field of condensed matter theory."
