so im just finishing up hawkins a brief history of the universe, and while dated, it was a good read. im looking for something to break me into quantum mechanics. everything i see/hear about it intrigues me and i need to know more. i need advice on a good book to break me into it. im not looking for a textbook persay, but more of a book thats along the lines of a brief history of the universe. ive taken my first year of physics, as well as calc 1-3, but no linear or diff eqs yet (taking linear this semester).
