Kassel's Quantum Groups is beautifully written, and includes all the necessary materials for a solid introduction to quantum groups. Perhaps one large advantage this book has over Jantzen's book (Lectures on Quantum Groups) is its treatment of Hopf algebras in the introductory sections, as well as the breadth of exercises at the end of each chapter. This makes the text especially useful for a introductory course on quantum groups (at the graduate level).
We used this book for a reading course on quantum groups. My only complaint would be that there are still some errors in the exercises, as well as in some of the main content. This could make working through the text on your own difficult at times, although I did not find this to be that big of a problem. Overall the text was a perfect fit.
