Actually, Chris Cramer is the author of “Essentials..”.
Errol Lewars’ “Computational Chemistry” is another good intro to the mathematics of Hartree-Fock MO method and basis functions. It has exercises for the student, with answers in the back of the book.

I think Chris Farmer's book "Essentials of Computational Chemistry" would be a good place to start. It have quite a bit on how various methods work and does not have a great deal of mathematical details.
Dear Dr. Lehtola,
Can You please suggest something good to read about the theory of CPHF and response functions? I have performed some literature search but it was quite hard to me to sum it up to get at least some understanding of "how it works": I have never attended any serious course on quantum mechanics or chemistry, and I didn't find much literature for laymen like me either. Most books I have read contain either the essential basics or deep discussion, being quite sparse in between.
With deep gratitude,

By default, Gaussian uses CPHF for polarizabilities (quite different from the response formalism, as far as I can judge – /can anyone comment on that?/)
CPHF *is* linear response.
