I am learning nonlinear optics and recently got my hand on Nonlinear Optics by Robert W Boyd.
Any other suggestions?
Also is there a solution manual available for the above textbook?

Currently, as far as I know the most up-to-date book on nonlinear optics is this one by Boyd. However, sometimes he skipped some derivation by simply stating that the corresponding derivation can be found in another book mentioned along. Therefore, if you want to be rigorous, you should also check those books. Another comprehensive nonlinear optics book may be from Shen, "The Principles of Nonlinear Optics ". But I think this book is rather old.
