Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher is a publishing first. This set couples a book containing the six easiest chapters from Richard Feynmans landmark work, Lectures on Physics—specifically designed for the general, non-scientist reader—with the actual recordings of the late, great physicist delivering the lectures on which the chapters are based. Nobel Laureate Feynman gave these lectures just once, to a group of Caltech undergraduates in 1961 and 1962, and these newly released recordings allow you to experience one of the Twentieth Centurys greatest minds—as if you were right there in the classroom.

Synopsis:

"Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher is a publishing first. This set couples a book containing the six easiest chapters from Richard Feynmans landmark work,"

Synopsis:

"In these lectures, everything you've ever heard about Feynman's wit and genius comes through". — John Horgan, author of The End of Science.

"Want to really understand why time slows, mass increases and length contracts as something approaches light speed, why space has just got to be curved and why it is not only impossible to predict the future, but actually there is no fortune teller who can even tell us the present?' ... Sure this is hard stuff — the cerebral equivalent of high-impact aerobics...but there is no better explanation for the scientifically literate layman...Just do it". — The Washington Post Book World
