I have been studying quantum mechanics now for about 20 years and have to keep going over and over the material. Yes, after all this time I count myself a neophyte. You have to open yourself to an entirely new way of thinking. There has been many a night when I got out of bed, went to the library and reread pages I'd read the day before. You'll say to yourself, "that can't possibly be what I read." What did that page really say? And, you'll find you've recalled correctly. Close your mouth and accept your incredulity as a constantly returning visitor as long as you stick with this topic.
I diagram sentences and draw flow charts. You've really got to want to know this stuff.
That's half the point of the book, and one of the reasons one of the coauthors is a philosopher. I respectfully suggest discounting the low-rating reviewers for that reason; if you don't want to read a common-sense review of the philosophical implications of QM, then don't pick the book up in the first place.
I found this half very good. I actually found the layperson's physics half very good as well. I had a few things explained better here than I've read before, especially issues on statistical approaches to QM and the fuzziness of the classical-quantum "border."
The focus, ultimately, is on the Bohr-Heisenberg approach and the growing dissatisfaction of others who refuse to accept the coexistence of two basically incompatible theories of nature. Other culture-based influences are also treated as they made their appearances - Eastern mysticism, the anthropic principle, EST, and others.
A great read and a great exposition of an important topic.
