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.

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).

I've read this book cover to cover twice. Amazing introduction to a fantastic topic.
