**Condensed Matter Field Theory**(2nd Edition), Altland & Simons, Cambridge University Press (2010)Very good overview of concepts in the course such as 2nd quantisation, path integrals, pertubation theory as well as concepts dealt with in QFT2 course (and beyond!)

**Introduction to Many-Body Physics**, Coleman, Cambridge University Press (2015)Nice compliment to Altland and Simons for further reading. Includes many problems and certain concepts not thoroughly dealt with in Altland and Simons, such as a detailed chapter on Fermi-liquid theory

**Quantum Many-Particle Systems**, Negele and Orland, Westview Press (1998)A classical text on the functional field integral formulation

**QFT of Many-Body Systems**, X.G. Wen, Oxford (2004)An advanced book covering many modern "topological" aspects of field theory

**The Quantum Theory of Fields: Vol 1-3**, Weinberg, Cambridge (1995)A view on QFT from the high-energy physics perspective
