From the reviews of the third edition:
"This monograph is devoted to a standard approach of kinetic theory in classical and quantum systems. … The book is divided in 7 chapters; each of them is ended by a set of interesting problems of different difficulties. The presentation is clear … . The book includes also tables and figures that make more pleasant its reading. … this book gives a standard presentation of kinetic theory; one of its qualities is to provide clear calculations and a good overview of classical methods." (Stéphan Métens, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)
"Liboff’s book on kinetic theory, now in its third edition, is a gulf apart from standard treatments one encounters in statistical and thermal physics texts. … This text will be suitable for students and researchers … . Students will welcome the good number of problems at the end of each chapter, some of which having detailed solutions." (J. Hartley, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 45 (5), 2005)
