I love reading popular sciences books during my free time, and I am particularly interested in physics. So far, I have read about Feynman, Dirac, Heisenberg, Bohr, Pauli, Oppenheimer, Randall, Steven Weinberg...in different books. The problem is that I don't have a background in physics, but I want to understand some basic stuff in quantum mechanics so that I can enjoy my reading more. I have a decent background in mathematics (bachelor's degree in math and currently working on my master's degree in math). I only had two calculus based physics courses when I was a freshman, and I don't really remember anything from my physics classes. I wonder if I can learn some basic stuff in quantum mechanics through introductory books on this subject. Is there a quantum mechanics book for laymen? I know it isn't an easy subject to digest, but I want to try since I don't really have anything to do this summer. I'd really appreciate any suggestions?
