Who are the readers?
on July 15, 2002
For a layman, like high school students etc., this book is not clear enough to convey the concepts of QM. They will need much help from teachers. It's more like a math book, which tells you what calculus and D.E. are good for.
For a college student, this book is boring. You read a lot, but you get a little. A big waste of time, and money.
For both groups, I would recommend another book: The Structure and Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, by R. I. G. Hughes, as an introduction to the field. (ISBN 0-674-84392-4)
