    What counts as a clear book all depends on your background. Are you looking for a text aimed at undergraduates?

    One example (which has the benefit of being free to download which is why I refer to it) is a new book by James Binney and David Skinner:

    In print, I personally like Shankar's book on the topic too: The Principles of Quantum Mechanics - R Shankar.

    But I'm a theory-inclined person, and what is 'clear' for one person might not be for someone else. If you explain your background there might be more targeted suggestions possible.

    Are you looking for a non-mathematical descriptive overview, or a real textbook?

    Also, how much mathematics do you know already, and how much other physics (classical mechanics, electricity & magnetism)?

    U know I look for a non-mathematical descriptive overview and as far as a real textbook. I like to read both kind of books. My mathematics isn't so perfect but I know mathematics so so. If u could advise me some book 'bout maths would be better too.
