There's a lot of old threads here with the same question. Here's a link to an old, though closed thread with some good suggestions What is a good introductory book on quantum mechanics?

I'd start with this book first and then once you understand more about Quantum Physics then I'd suggest you move onto something more advanced.

  1. Quantum Physics For Dummies

  2. Quantum: A Guide for The Perplexed

This should give you a good set of knowledge for this topic

I would rather suggest the OP to start off with Griffiths. – Torsten Hĕrculĕ Cärlemän Jan 6 '14 at 10:32
I'm sorry but I don't understand? – Joe Hilton Jan 6 '14 at 10:38

I read books by John Gribbin when I was at school, certainly played a part in me studying physics. In Search of Schrödinger's Cat was my favourite but there are a couple of others.
