This book does presume a fairly high level of knowledge of quantum mechanics, but is a great exposition of the history of the development of ALL quantum mechanics. The reader will delight in the story behind so much we had to simply take for granted in the usual treatment of quantum mechanics in undergraduate course.
One of the delights is that we get a much better picture from this book than from class about how even the great physicists stumbled quite a bit with failures like the "Ersatzmodel" before they finally hit on the right idea: 'spin' and the 'spinor'.
