i'm surprised that previous reviewers failed to mention the huge amount of misprints this book has. although the corrections are posted online on the author's website, as posted they are incomplete, and you still have to go through the trouble of making twenty or so corrections in every single chapter of the text (did i mention the book is over 600 pages long?) in addition to correcting errors that aren't on the correction list. this is disturbing for though about half of the misprints are obvious, you can never really trust the book completely when you are working out complicated problems; you will be left doubting. it's a very comprehensive book though, and thorough, with many solved problems. i really have no other quantum texts to compare it to as this is my first one, but i've seen others and this seems to be up to par. also, i haven't really read much of it, and am only two chapters into it - so far i've been very pleased with its content as it is not shallow (i especially liked the treatment of wave packets in chapter one). however i'm left almost as much disappointed as i am pleased, because of the many misprints. such a potentially great book blighted by mere carelessness.Was this review helpful?

This book is a must have for any student of physics. The writing is extremely clear, an amazing feat when tackling a subject like quantum mechanics. A major plus is a large number of solved problems that make the book of high value. This book is a sure way to gain a clear understanding of quantum mechanics, and how to do quantum mechanics. Believe me it is much better than Griffiths, Sakuri, Liboff, or Cohen-Tannoudji. Nice historical introduction to the subject in the first chapter. The book is also a nice tool to have for graduate students preparing for comprehensive/qualifying exams.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is exactly what you want if you have registered a Quantum Mechanics course for your next semister. Unlike another quantum books, it has alot ,really alot, of solved problems helping you to deeply understand the subject. The auther could relate the solid material of quantum to many practical and useful physical facts. I reallllly recommend this book.. don't miss it!!Was this review helpful?
