Probably within the last year, I came across a recent textbook or textbook-style presentation of quantum mechanics, at the freshman level, that introduced the subject from scratch using decoherence. I think the text was online and not paywalled. Now I can't remember where I found it, and I can't seem to find it by googling. Can anyone point me to it?

Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

I finally remembered what book I'd had in mind. It's Griffiths, Consistent Quantum Theory, which is available in print and for free online. Although it does have a chapter on decoherence at the end of the book, my memory was wrong. It focuses on the consistent histories approach, not decoherence.
