Just by chance I got hold of this book and started looking into the much talked about wave-particle duality of light. It enticed me into the exciting world of quantum mechanics. The style is very lucid and makes interesting reading. The reader is not scared away by unnecessarily complicated analysis and at the same time it doesn't lose touch with the core concept. It guides the reader very smoothly and even instils confidence in their minds. I have seriously taken up the task of understanding quantum mechanics. "LEX" should continue this effort and write on various topics.

Format: Paperback
This is a very good and unusual book about Quantum Mechanics that appears to be aimed at a fairly young audience. The book does not gloss over difficult topics. It explains the difficult mathematics step by step rather than playing that age-old game of, "I'll write my book so that I can impress my colleagues with its abstruseness", which happens on occasion. It is Japanese in origin and almost has the feel of Manga (popular graphic novels), however, it covers the topic well. This would be a great book for "anyone" who really wants to be lead step by step through the historical development of Quantum Mechanics as well as the fundamental mathematics involved. If you are the type of person that really would like to understand the basis of this important subject, buy this book. If you are the type of person that wants to look "smart", and spend an extra several years trying to wade through many books that aren't as clearly presented, by all means, skip this one.

Format: Paperback
It's refreshing to find a physics book that takes the reader through the derivations step-by-step without making any "quantum leaps" that the reader is assumed to follow implicitly. I also liked the "what we've learned so far" summaries at the beginning of each chapter. The book is very valuable for these reasons alone. Although the stories about the people and history of quantum theory were great to have, I was somewhat annoyed by all the silly conversations and digressions of the students - the book could have been a lot shorter without these. Also, I think the book could have used more diagrams of wave propagation in order to help the reader develop an intuitive feeling (if that is really possible in QM).

With a university QM course on the near horizon, I thought I'd take a peek at an "easy" book to get some background.
And an easy (and informative) read is what it is, thanks to lots of baby steps and hand-holding.
If you're even slightly mathematically-inclined, this is accessible, all the more so if you have an inkling about Fourier series, too.
This book has done much more than take the edge off the subject for me - it's actually given me something of an insight, and whet my appetite for the uni course.
With the intuition largely in place thanks to this book, all I need do is concentrate on the maths.
Feel free to write one on topology and functional analysis, too. :-)
