In the following we show you which quantum mechanics books we love. We also tell you for whom we think the respective books will be the best fit. After all, different books are suitable for an amateur scientist and a physics students. For more information about the details of the books, check our page with quantum physics book reviews.

We also link to Amazon where you can buy the books. This makes life easier for you, and we can make a small commission that allows us to keep this website free of charge even without donations. Here is the official affiliate disclosure:

Note that you pay the identical price when buying through our links, not a penny more. But you do help us. We only recommend books that we really find suitable. Your trust in us means everything to us. In the following, we order the books with increasing difficulty level, most difficult last.

## Quantum Physics Books for Beginners – with Nearly No Formulas

The following books contain hardly any formulas. They are therefore suitable for all laymen interested in quantum physics. No strong math background needed!

### How to Teach Quantum Physics to Your Dog

Author: Chad Orzel

Language: English

Pages: 256

Dimensions: 5.5 x 0.7 x 8.4 inches

### The Quantum World – Quantum Physics for Everyone

Author: Kenneth W. Ford

Language: English

Pages: 304

Dimensions: 6.2 x 0.8 x 8.4 inches

## Quantum Mechanics Books for Beginners – with Formulas

The following books do contain a lot of formulas. They are therefore suitable for layman or science amateurs that do not shy away when seeing formulas. They are also suitable for physics students. Note that *Quantum Mechanics – The Theoretical Minimum* could well be a first book for physics students, but does not contain everything a physics student has to learn. For example, perturbation theory is not covered.

### Quantum Mechanics – The Theoretical Minimum

Authors: Leonard Susskind, Art Friedman

Language: English

Pages: 384

Dimensions: 5.5 x 1 x 8.2 inches

### The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Vol. 3

The edition we reviewed – now rather inexpensive.

Authors: Richard P. Feynman, Robert B. Leighton, Matthew Sands

Language: English

Pages: 379

Dimensions: 8.5 x 0.5 x 11 inches

### The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Vol. 3 – The New Millenium Edition

Newer than our reviewed edition, but somewhat more expensive.

Authors: Richard P. Feynman, Robert B. Leighton, Matthew Sands

Language: English

Pages: 400

Dimensions: 8.5 x 0.9 x 10.9 inches

## Exercises for the Feynman Lectures on Physics

Authors: Richard P. Feynman, Robert B. Leighton, Matthew Sands

Language: English

Pages: 320

Dimensions: ** ** 0.5 x 8.5 x 11 inches

## Quantum Physics Books for Physics Students

The following books are more complete with respect to topics, but also a bit harder to digest. We therefore recommend them primarily to physics students, not to the layman.

### Quantum Mechanics, Vol. 1

Authors: Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, Bernard Diu, Frank Laloe

Language: English

Pages: 914

Dimensions: 6.7 x 1.4 x 9.5 inches

### Quantum Mechanics, Vol. 2

Authors: Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, Bernard Diu, Frank Laloe

Language: English

Pages: 640

Dimensions: 6.8 x 1.3 x 9.5 inches

### Quantum Mechanics – Two Volume Set

The two volume set can be cheaper than buying both volumes individually. It’s quite expensive, anyway.

### Quantum Mechanics, Third Edition: Nonrelativistic Theory (Vol. 3)

Authors: L.D. Landau, L.M. Lifshitz

Language: English

Pages: 689

Dimensions: 7.4 x 1.6 x 9.7 inches
