Nielsen and Chuang's book can still be considered the main reference book on quantum information and computation, even after more than 10 years of the original release. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reference to start from.

However, if you already own the original version of the book, be warned that this book is basically a reprint of the first edition. It's true that it comes with a new introduction and afterword from the authors - but the new material is only 4 (four) pages long, and can be found online for free in this very site under the "Look inside" link. This is the reason why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 - I believe that a "10th Anniversary Edition" deserved a little bit more than 4 pages of new information, especially in the case of a book on a very dynamic field.

Quantum Computation and Quantum Information: 10th Anniversary Edition
This book is definitely THE source to turn to for an understanding of Quantum Computation and Information. One can only read through the first chapter and you are given the key feature of Quantum Computation and Information. The advantage of this approach is that Chapter 1 establishes a Quantum roadmap of what you need to know. You can stop there or you can dive deeper into the technology. Using the remaining chapters as a reference or continuation of course studies.

But, it is the 10th Edition and I would have liked to see some new information associated with current trends in Quantum Computing. For examples:
1) Adiabatic verses Gate Arrays,
2) Quantum instructions examples, whether it is by circuit manipulation or by an Objective function,
3) A review section on quantum Notations (logic, Bra-kets, linear algebra) to help readers get back into it again.

This is THE book for those interested in finding out what is Quantum computers, but go slow with the first chapter and use the internet to clarify topics that are new to you, or to just refresh your memory. If you can skip through Chapter 1, you don't need the book.
