Is "Quantum Physics for Dummies" a good textbook for starting QP?

  • #1
I've been reading about Quantum Mechanics for years now and I think it's time I bought a textbook and really learned the math. I'm 15 y.o. and have a working understanding of Derivitives, Integrals and Vectors. Is this textbook a good one to start with or is it too complex? Which one would you recommend for my case?

Here is the Texbook in question: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1118460820/?tag=pfamazon01-20

I don't know that book. You could take a look at this for free:

Which I think is an excellent introduction to QM.
