1) The Standard Model: A Primer, C.P. Burgess and G.D. Moore, Cambridge University Press (2006 and updated 2013 to include the Higgs discovery): This graduate textbook uses the Standard Model of particle physics to introduce the techniques of Quantum Field Theory. The intention is to provide in this way both a practical introduction to calculating in field theory, and an introduction to the phenomenology of the Standard Model.
