    Well, my opinion is that it totally lacks mathematical rigor...

    It depends on the level of understanding, I think Sakurai has done a good job balancing mathematics and intuition. One can do a highly mathematical exposition for a grad QM book, butr I guess what one treasures in QM is a little intuitive understanding.

    I took a 2 semester sequence from it, and I really enjoyed it. It does a good job of exposing students to interesting questions and their solutions, and it fairly represents the experimental side. It is a very readable book that could even be used for advanced undergraduates.
