Default What is a good book about Quantum Physics for the layman?



I would like to learn more about Quantum Physics. I am something of a novice when it comes to science but I'm not an idiot either. Can you recommend a book about Quantum Physics which is both entertaining and informative?

Many Thanks,
Sally.

A good one to start with is The Dancing Wu Li Masters. It's a pretty good book with no mathematics, and does a good job explaining the "weird" stuff in physics.
