'...every page shows evidence of great mastery of the subject.' Trans. Faraday Society 'this book is destined to play a major part in the future education of theoretical physicists.' Proceedings of the Physical Society This edition has been completelyrevised to include some 20% of new material. Important recent developments such as the theory of Regge poles are now included. Many problems with solutions have been added to those already contained in the book.

Quiet hard. Especially, the hardest part is that when this guy explains something very important but he uses no mathematical terms. I know that he knows it completely and everything is 'trial' to him, but it seems that he doesn't know that I (& probably many students reading this book) barely understand what object is being discussed. The problem is, thus I get mad when I try to solve some problems from other sources because I think like: Landau didn't tell me this!
But the fact is: He told me but I missed it. There's always a remote part where he has explained it 'enough'.
Not easy read.
Landau-Lifshitz "Course of Theoretical Physics" is, probably, one of the most important book series on theoretical physics.
If you can find one printed in Britain, better.
It is the book I was looking for; the authors make a nice physical description of the formalism which, I believe, is very important.
This is a very good book on non-relativistic quantum mechanics by an acknowledged master of theoretical physics. Almost every sentence is meaningful and well thought out. However this book is not meant for a novice who wishes to study the subject for the first time. Landau's unique perspectives on this subject (as well as others in his famous Course of Theoretical Physics) is best appreciated by physicists who are well versed in their disciplines. The reader should also be aware that recent developments such as quantum entanglement and quantum computation are not in the book. All in all, a very good book to add to your physics collection.
One of the best books on the subject. Simply perfect. You will find everything you need inside it. A good idea is to use it together with another book (J. Sakurai, R. Shankar, W. Greiner, or S. Gasiorowicz).
This wonderful course of theoretical physics is written by outstanding scientists and is deep and clear. It gives you the opportunity not only to become acquainted with the basic problems of quantum mechanics but also to feel what is physical intuition and method of theoretical thinking. The ability of understanding the essense of the problem and making qualitative estimations (simple numerically but working pretty well) is the characteristic feature of Landau school.
