Can't say I fully understood much of it, especially the math, but I have been curious to read up on Quantum computers and it seemed to be the most rated book out there.
Joshua Lockhart
An excellent introduction, particularly valuable sections on the underlying mathematics (complex vector spaces etc) of the field.

Unfortunately there are a number of errors in the book that aren't listed on the official errata, so you'll need to watch out for them. I'd also have liked a little more depth on Quantum Mechanics itself.
Joshua
This book was really simple to read and understand and I think it was laid out well. Certainly a good book to read if you are interested in the subject but don't want to get to bogged down in the complex detail (there are plenty of other books which provide this detail).
Vincent Russo
I've read this book cover to cover twice. Amazing introduction to a fantastic topic.
