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.
The same is true for illustrations. Worse yet, some symbols end up being in-lined graphics. "1/SQRT(2)", for example, shows the square root symbol and the number two as a graphic: "1/", where "" is a tiny square graphic. In this situation, I'm unable to select the graphic to expand it. If I can't guess the content of the formula from the context in the text, I'm simply stuck: I can't read the content.
I feel badly giving this book only two stars, but the Kindle version really is that unreadable. Amazon should be working to fix thee issues and make the Kindle a viable platform for technical books. As far as I can tell, Amazon scans titles and doesn't do adequate cleanup work for things (like formula with Greek characters and mathematical symbols) that don't reliably OCR. Poor content squanders the potential value in their platform, so you think they'd be motivated to make the platform work as well as possible.
Until Amazon come to their senses, you'll have to carry books like this (no matter how well-written) in your backpack instead of conveniently hosting them on your Kindle reader.
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.
Lots of material in this book. Unfortunately the only QC I have access too doesn't have a lot of qbits.
