Quantum mechanics embraces the behaviour of all known forms of matter, including the atoms and molecules from which we, and all living organisms, are composed. Molecular Quantum Mechanics leads us through this absorbing yet challenging subject, exploring the fundamental physical principles that explain how all matter behaves.
Professor Peter W. Atkins, Professor of Chemistry, and fellow of Lincoln College, University of Oxford, UK.

An ideal purchase for undergraduates as it gives a comprehensive coverage of all the topics at this level, offering a great deal of additional insight for those captivated by the quantum world... For those enthusiastic about this field and looking for a more rigorous approach, this text is absolutely superb. The impressive range and depth of topics covered make it a very worthwhile purchase. Rebecca Ingle, Times Higher Education Supplement A must have book that's ideal for every chemistry student to have on their shelf. Claire Pickering, student, University of Central Lancashire Although this is an undergraduate textbook it constitutes quite an advanced course in molecular quantum mechanics. It makes a good introduction to a novice, be they undergraduate or postgraduate, to a wide variety of specialist areas within molecular quantum mechanics. Stephen H. Ashworth, Contemporary Physics
