1) **** “**The New Quantum Universe**” by Tony Hey
and Patrick Walters, 2004. This book is the best all round source of information
about quantum mechanics. There are lots of pictures, diagrams, history, experimental
evidence and depth to the discussion.

2) *** "**Quantum: A Guide for the Perplexed**" by Jim
Al-Khalili, 2003. A very good book with great illustrations but sometimes lacking
in the depth of its explanations.

3) *** "**Where does the Weirdness Go?**" by David Lindley,
1996. A very good discussion of what is weird in quantum mechanics and why we
don't see it in our everyday lives. Full discussion of the various interpretations
of quantum mechanics. In 2007 he wrote ***"**Uncertainty: Einstein,
Heisenberg, Bohr and the Struggle for the Soul of Science**" which
is an excellent treatment, in depth treatment as to why quantum uncertainty
is such a radical departure from classical physics.

4) *** "**A Shortcut Through Time: The Path to the Quantum Compute**r"
by George Johnson, 2003. A thorough explanation that almost made me feel like
I understood what a quantum computer was.

5) *** "**The Quest for the Quantum Computer**" by Julian
Brown, 2000. This is a great book, if you are interested in the math and computer
science of quantum computers.

6) *** "**How to Teach Physics to Your Dog**" by Chad
Orzel, 2009. The book is both in more depth and at the same time more understandable
than most others. I liked the fact that it wasn't afraid to put a bit of math
in and he focusses on polarized light as the best vehicle for understanding
quantum weirdness- somehting I have been convinced of for a long time. The dog
angle is surprisingly useful.
