    I've read this book cover to cover twice. Amazing introduction to a fantastic topic. I've read this book cover to cover twice. Amazing introduction to a fantastic topic.

    A gentle introduction to Quantum Computing, covering a variety of aspects at an introductory level. It is indeed a very good book for CS people, and has a lot of programming exercises to help familiarize the reader with the concepts. Linear algebra and coding experience are the only real prerequisites. Some exposure to Quantum Mechanics also helps.

    Introduction to quantum mathematics are explained carefully. There are programming problems that will ignite action towards the subject. It also tackles different fields where Quantum Computing can be applied. Still, QC is on its very early stage. And the book urges everyone to participate on the research.

    Starts off great but kinda goes off the rails after chapter 5 or 6 (I think). It's good as a starting point into quantum computing, but I suggest John Watrous' booklet that is available online is a much more comprehensible and consistent resource for learning it.

    Really excellent introduction to quantum Computing with lots of exercises, additional references and selected topics for further study. Material is well laid out and should be understandable even if you know nothing about quantum mechanics and mathematics behind it.

    either carry errata everywhere or wait to 2nd edition with minimized number of typos, However it is a good way to start and if you are Arabic check one of the Quantum leaders in Egypt: Younis's list https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list... either carry errata everywhere or wait to 2nd edition with minimized number of typos, However it is a good way to start and if you are Arabic check one of the Quantum leaders in Egypt: Younis's list https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...

    An excellent introduction, particularly valuable sections on the underlying mathematics (complex vector spaces etc) of the field. Unfortunately there are a number of errors in the book that aren't listed on the official errata, so you'll need to watch out for them. I'd also have liked a little more depth on Quantum Mechanics itself. An excellent introduction, particularly valuable sections on the underlying mathematics (complex vector spaces etc) of the field.

    This book was really simple to read and understand and I think it was laid out well. Certainly a good book to read if you are interested in the subject but don't want to get to bogged down in the complex detail (there are plenty of other books which provide this detail).

    Can't say I fully understood much of it, especially the math, but I have been curious to read up on Quantum computers and it seemed to be the most rated book out there.
