Main Question or Discussion Point

I left High School a few years back with a C grade in Higher Physics and recently have found Quantum Mechanics quite interesting but I been trying to get to grips with a Physicists basic understanding of QM. The resources on the web seem to contradict each other and it's all very confusing. It also leaves me with some questions that I can't find answers to.

So what books out there have clear, honest and consistent information on the subject?

"QED: The strange theory of light and matter" by Richard Feynman is a classic. I like Roger Penrose's book too, e.g. "The emperor's new mind". (Both of these are popular science books).
