    I like Modern Physics by Krane. It's a book that's used to teach modern physics to nonphysics majors (eg: engineers). If you want an introduction that's geared toward physics majors, then I recommend first Quantum Physics by Eisberg and Resnick, and second Introduction to the Structure of Matter by Brehm and Mullin.

    go for gasiorowicz or better still griffiths... i believe there are two aspects to learning quantum mechanics... you "do" quantum, as in you do numericals and know how to deal with problems and situations... and you "understand" quantum, which is basically understanding the philosophy of quantum mechanics... one should always "do" quantum mechanics first from elementary texts like gasiorowicz, griffiths, resnick and eisberg and then go for more detailed books like cohen-tannoudji, david bohm, landau etc...
