I have a physics A level and a continuing interest in science so I wasn't completely out of my depth with this one but then I largely ignored the maths and just followed the concepts. Worth reading if you're interested in the ideas - the quantum physics chapter at least allowed me to appreciate the bizzare goings on at that level, and explains the observation principle in a way that makes sense. However, the book was written in the early '60s so some sections, in particular that on subatomic particles has been overtaken by events.

A readable book for anyone wanting to grasp these fundamentals and more approachable than a textbook.
