`Several unique features set this textbook apart from its congeners. The text is very comprehensive, covering subjects that range from elements of molecular spectroscopy to modern electronic structure calculations, yet concise enough to be suitable for a one-semester series of lectures. The material is presented in a modular fashion, facilitating both instruction and learning. Emphasizing the connections between basic theory and practical applications, this book is equally appropriate for introductory and terminal undergraduate courses. I strongly recommend it.'
J. Cioslowski, Professor of Chemistry
`I would recommend this book as a good companion for most basic undergraduate courses in both quantum chemistry and molecular spectroscopy.'

` Quantum Chemistry with Molecular Spectroscopy and Electronic Structure Computations is an excellent introduction to the discipline for advanced undergraduate students. True to its title, it emphasizes computational methods early in the text, with variation and perturbation methods being introduced in Chapter 4. The text is very clear and readable, but the book is complete enough to serve as a good reference. The end-of-chapter problems are challenging without being impossible, and are excellent for the undergraduate student audience. Difficult subjects, such as group theory, appropriate for a graduate course are omitted altogether. This is an excellent text for a senior-level course in quantum chemistry.'
