Quantum QFT book recommendations except Peskin/Schroeder

Hello!
Due to the textbook by Peskin and Schroeder being rather old, I was wondering what are other, more pedagogical textbooks on Quantum Field Theory that you would recommend!
Any suggestion is appreciated!

Well, Pesking and Schroeder is not that old, and it's a not too bad a textbook, but it's unfortunately plagued with a lot of typos and some inaccuracies (e.g., dimensionful arguments in logarithms in the chapter about renormalization (sic!)).

At the moment my favorite introductory textbook is

M. D. Schwartz, Quantum field theory and the Standard Model, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, New York, 2014.

The best for more detailed studies is, of course,

S. Weinberg, The Quantum Theory of Fields, 3 Vols., Cambridge University Press
