The classic on the formalism of quantum mechanics. Only for the serious... But if you understand this stuff, this is one of the most clear and lucid books on QM ever written.

Dirac had a knack of explaining quite complicated things in a simple and understandable way. This is of course an old book, and it is very elementary, but I still remember the joyful feeling of being exposed to something that beautiful and clear. The old guy really made it possible for me to understand a bit of the underlying logic. Suddenly quantum mechanics didn't seem half as freaky as it used to. Great teacher.

If a book could be rated with more than 5 Stars, this would be it. Clear, concise and the math makes sense. The chapters follow a logical order and build from basic concepts like Superposition Theory to Relativity and QED. Dirac first published this work in 1930 but has updated much of it in later editions throughout his long and productive life. You will read it again and again, I know I have.

A must read for people interested in QM. Accessable to undergraduates, but meaty enough for graduates.
