my textbook in Adv. P-chem. it helped me get an A in that class. i think that alone deserves 4stars.

EDIT: but i didn't enjoy it SO MUCH as to warrant a second reading. so middle of the road 3 stars it is.

Readable style. Covers a lot of group theory and applications to chemistry, leading up to the interpretation of electronic and vibrational molecular spectra. Plenty of worked examples and problems to try (with answers at the back).

This book was for a course that absolutely challenged me in school, and now I read through it every once in a while for fun.

I used to be into Chemistry, but this is a good book on symmetry groups and how it effects energy levels for molecular and crystalline systems. Its cheap too.
