Quantum Computing: From Alice to Bob provides a distinctive and accessible introduction to the rapidly growing fields of quantum information science and quantum computing. The textbook is designed for undergraduate students and upper-level secondary school students with little or no background in physics, computer science, or mathematics beyond secondary school algebra and a bit of trigonometry. Higher education faculty members and secondary school
mathematics, physics, and computer science educators who want to learn about quantum computing and perhaps teach a course accessible to students with wide ranging backgrounds will also find the book useful and enjoyable.

While broadly accessible, the textbook does not dodge providing a solid conceptual and formal understanding of quantum states and entanglement - the key ingredients in quantum computing. The authors dish up a hearty meal for the readers, disentangling and explaining many of the classic quantum algorithms that demonstrate how and when QC has an advantage over classical computers. The book is spiced with Try Its, brief exercises that engage the readers in problem solving (both with and
without mathematics) and help them digest the many counter-intuitive quantum information science and quantum computing concepts.
