    The easiest to read, IMO, is Morrison's Understanding Quantum Theory.

    Interesting, clear, starts from the basics: The Principles of Quantum Mechanics / Dirac.
    (Some people consider this book old-fashioned or difficult, but I don't think so.)

    The Dirac's book has too many mathmatics, and the physical description is profound, If read it, May be I need some basic knowledge of general physics more.
    by the way, I want to do rearch in superstrings(M-theory), What do I need about quantum mechnics?

    thank you for JohnDubYa , salsero.
