For some unknown reason, my undergraduate institution used Goswami's quantum mechanics text instead of the plethora of other quality texts everyone else seems to use (. Griffith's Introduction to Quantum Mechanics). Quantum mechanics is a difficult subject to "get" anyway, even with a good text, but it was practically impossible to make sense of with Goswami's book. Fortunately, the professor who taught the first semester of QM was good, so there was really no need to refer to the textbook.

Quantum mysticism is a set of metaphysical beliefs and associated practices that seek to relate consciousness, intelligence, spirituality, or mystical worldviews to the ideas of quantum mechanics and its interpretations. Quantum mysticism is considered by most scientists and philosophers to be pseudoscience or quackery.

Ideal for a one-semester, senior-level or first-year graduate-level course, Quantum Mechanics, by Amit Goswami, presents the fundamental aspects of the field in a well-written and up-to-date manner.
Reviews about Quantum Mechanics (7):
Vosho
Had hoped for more theoretical writing, but this book is filled with mathematical equations, and short on theory. Disappointing after seeing Amit Goswami on PBS and getting excited to learn more about quantum physics. This text book is for advanced physics students only!
Negal
This is THE [extra] book for quantum mechanics. I use this as a companion to my well used Griffiths text, and you cannot go wrong with the combination.
Clodebd
Lots of mathematics, formulas, etc. Not recommended unless he has a thorough knowledge of Physics and math. I thought it would have contained more philosophy.

I am reading it in conjunction with the other books by Goswami of recent years.

A good book

For some unknown reason, my undergraduate institution used Goswami's quantum mechanics text instead of the plethora of other quality texts everyone else seems to use (e.g. Griffith's Introduction to Quantum Mechanics). Quantum mechanics is a difficult subject to "get" anyway, even with a good text, but it was practically impossible to make sense of with Goswami's book. Fortunately, the professor who taught the first semester of QM was good, so there was really no need to refer to the textbook. However, the professor who taught the second semester course was atrocious, and all of us students were left trying to learn the material by reading Goswami's book (as well as any other texts we could get our hands on). Needless to say, I got very little out of second semester QM except a hard-earned B (the only B I got that semester).

I'm entering grad school this fall and am spending the summer trying to master all that undergraduate QM. I didn't realize just how bad Goswami's book was until I picked up Griffith's text for review, as well some others (e.g. Greiner, Liboff, and Sakurai). All that material I thought was inconceivably hard as an undergrad seems downright easy now...that is, after I started reading these other QM books.

If you're new to QM, do yourself a favor and avoid Goswami's book at all cost. There are so many GOOD alternatives; pick one of those instead.

This is a fairly complete treatment of QM. The only downside is that it is somewhat too advanced for an intro to the subject, but not rigorous enough for an advanced treatment. However, I used this book as a "backup" to Sakurai in a graduate level QM course. In that role it was flawless. It could also be used as a supplement to Griffith's QM book (which is extremely good but has some logical/mathematical flaws). In this case it would be serving as an "advanced" introduction.
Had this text for an Intro to QM course - not a good choice for the "Intro" part. Goswami covers all the bases but his organization of material seems a little discombobulated. I can see this text being reasonable for a second QM course, but not as an intro. Griffiths or Liboff is better for this purpose.
