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 P. 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.

This is a great introduction to physics! Feynman uses examples from the real world to help you understand what's going on. I really like how he recaps what science has already learned about the universe. I also enjoyed how he relates physics to the other sciences.
