A complete, thorough and good book is Steven Weinberg's 3-volume opus on QFT. It is perhaps too complete for beginners.

@ArnoldNeumaier It's good that you removed the note that such answers are inappropriate, as they are definitely appropriate on PhysicsOverflow.
However, I think you shouldn't have remove the note that it is compiled from previous answers, or the answerer is getting undue credit for something which isn't his work.
sorry for having deleted too much.
