Grains of Mystique: Quantum Physics for the Layman
by T. Haberkern, N. Deepak
Most of you will have heard the word quantum, and often wondered what it means, or what its significance is. Of course, there are lots of books available on this matter, complete with equations and rigorous derivations. If you wanted a simple tutorial, an introduction to quantum physics without all the hassles of mathematics, then read on.

This is an introductory text, it includes material which overlaps with particle physics, including a number of interesting models as well as material on identical particles. The ideas of quantum mechanics are introduced via Process Diagrams.
Introduction to the subject of quantum mechanics, following the historical development of the theory. Physics and mathematics required. From the contents: atoms, the Feynman route to Schroedinger, the Schroedinger equation, entanglement.
by Casey Blood - arXiv
All the concepts necessary to understand quantum mechanics on an initial level are given in a form suitable for the non-expert. The topics include visualizing the wave function, wave-particle duality, the implications of Schrodinger's cat, etc.
