Thought there would be less mathematics but for those who need to know it I suppose its a good introduction.
I was expecting more in the way of the latest theories on the multiverse etc in other words did not know it was expecting
a budding university graduate. Maybe in another universe, I'm right, but in this one the maths is a little too good for me!
I wont hesitate to recommend it to such a university graduate though, since I felt sure I could understand it if I had a real
need to. Not for me, but definitely for someone else.

This book is very good, however it could do with a bit more of a "primer" for those readers that are rusty on their maths or have inexperience in matrices and

In other words it is written in a very user friendly style and it does explain things like bra-ket notation and runs through the fundamentals pretty well, but then it picks up the pace so rapidly to complex areas that it becomes unfathomable, it needs a more gentle and gradual transition to the hard stuff. The problem is it ends up being just like any other quantum physics book with scary equations, this means as a "dummies" guide it is mislabelled, as it can only help you scale the dizzy heights of quantum physics if you are a fully seasoned Chris Bonnington with crampons and an oxygen mask with years of high altitude alpine climbing behind you. It is not written for dummies or newbies.

Nevertheless it is a good book and well written and so I have given it a generous four stars.

Not "for dummies"....Requires quite advanced maths ability, to say the least.

If this book is for dummies, I must be subnormal! The entire book consists of advanced maths and was way beyond me, even though I have a physics degree. I was expecting nice, clear explanations to give me a greater understanding of the subject but it's just a mass of equations from beginning to end! Maybe I need a book for idiots...

You need to be pretty clever to understand this book - in fact the book even warns that you really need to understand calculus and have a pretty good understanding of physics. So, NOT for dummies. 'Quantum Theory: A Very Short Introduction' Oxford University Press is a better introductory guide (and cheaper).

I found this book disappointing. It is neither a good introduction for the non-initiate nor will it meet the needs of the serious student. There is a signal lack of examples and illustrations. Nonetheless, it does get you into the subject. Sebastian Hayes

Good but needed less math and more metaphorical explanations.
