I had to read this book in order to learn Quantum Theory for a Discovery classroom series I was writing. While it's a lot heavier on the math, science and history of the theory than the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know", it does do a fair job of making the heavy concepts palatable via humor, analogies and comic-booky illustrations. By the end (and after several necessary re-reads) I actually felt like I had a good handle on just how Quantum Theory works, the mysteries it invokes and the reason it is such a cool branch of science. If you're interested in this type of stuff it's a good comprehensive intro to the subject.
