Modern Quantum Chemistry: Introduction to Advanced Electronic Structure TheoryThe aim of this graduatelevel textbook is to present and explain, at other than a superficial level, modem ab initio approaches to the calculation of the electronic structure and properties of molecules. The first three chapters contain introductory material culminating in a thorough discussion of the HartreeFock approximation.The remaining four chapters describe a variety of more sophisticated approaches, which improve upon this approximation.

Best quantum chemistry book ever which explains the HartreeFock method most clearly. A mustread book for who wants to know quantum chemistry!
It is undoubtedly well written and well organised book. This is rare in the sense that It is optimized in terms of its contents. Because of a huge literature available on the subject, It is very hard to find a book which is strong on basics as well as on current issues. This serve both the purposes on equal footing.
