It is stated in my book "All gases condense to form liquids or solids before -273.15 degree Celsius is reached?

could you explain this statement generally and my question in the title specifically?

Well since the lowest temperature that can exist is -273.15 C.

All gases condense to liquid or solids almost all to solids because at this temperature molecular activity ceases.

And the title of your question seems contradicting with what you have written. Probably you might have mistaken interpreting "before".

also only ideal gas can remain gas at this temperature as they have no force of attraction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_zero
