Just thought a list of decent books of this type might be of interest to a few people.
I want titles and then a description of why you recommend it. I'll post up more later if I get a chance etc.
To start the ball rolling
"In Search of Schroedinger's Kittens"/"In search of Schroedinger's Cat" - John Gribbon.
Excellent books, simple language used to roughly sketch out difficult concepts. I personally loved his approach of descrining experiments and their results. The books give a nice picture as to what experiments underly most of the main theories. Perhaps a little outdated now, but I'd still recommend them to anyone looking for a solid introduction to quantum. No substitute for tackling the maths, but hey, I can appreciate people not wanting to do that!
