I'd like to learn QM

Can anyone recommend a good book to start with? Preferable one that oriented towards teaching the QM newbie. It should discuss the problems with classical that led the development of quantum. I'd say I have a pretty good conceptual mind, but I'm not much of a mathematician.

Anything out there for me?

Great, painless is good.
On the other side though, about how in depth would you say it gets?

It's intermediate between popular treatments and introductory textbooks: Basic equations are presented with explanations but no derivations. It's a great little book written by a master. You won't be disappointed.
