The best introductory book on the field in my opinion. Along with standard topics like Feynman diagrams, the book discusses effective lagrangians, renormalization group equations, the path integral formulation, spontaneous symmetry breaking and non-abelian gauge theories.
A Modern Introduction to Quantum Field Theory
At the aimed level of the book I think that it was a good idea to limit the discussions to the low energy approximation of the electroweak theory, and to expound only the two main ingredients of the Standard Model, namely Yang-Mills theories and the Higgs mechanism.
I feel however introductioh I received a very solid foundation to the subject from this book and am glad I started with Maggiore. One person found this helpful. A Modern Introduction to Quantum Field Theory Michele Maggiore Oxford Master Series in Physics Quantum field theory has undergone extraordinary developments in the last few decades and permeates many branches of modern research such as particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena.

The importance and the beauty of modern quantum field theory resides in the power and variety of its methods and ideas, which find application in domains as different as particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena. The binding comes out after some use, I found chapter 1 to be unnecessary, wish some topics were explained in more detail and wanted the Standard Model to be discussed at the end.
