    Story

    In this collection of lectures that Richard Feynman originally gave in 1963, unpublished during his lifetime, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist discusses several of the ultimate questions of science. What is the nature of the tension between science and religious faith? Why does uncertainty play such a crucial role in the scientific imagination? Is this really a scientific age?

    Would you listen to The Meaning of it All again? Why?

    Many,many times


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    This man is a genius and even when I don't agree with him at times he always gives clear explanations for his reasoning everything like communism being unscientific and next to useless is honestly gone over ,plus the fact that science is not there to disprove God, that's not sciences job I love his explanations ,should be recommended for one side of science Stevenson the other forme for pro and con of paranormal and obviously feynman disagrees with that ,but on the politics of paranoia I defiantly recommend this book


    What does Raymond Todd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Raymond Todd dosent sound like feynman but at times he captures the flavour very closely all in all an excellent job he should be proud


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No,some books make you think, you have to.but it's easy to read ,I just think it's the kind of book to put down ,and look at the world and politics around you, and see it actually happening,rather frightining

    For more than 30 years, Richard P. Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity, and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics to be better than the print version?

    The books and audios really go together ,the sound quality at times in this series is bad but it is 50years old and the audios don't match up with the chapters in the books if only the would clean up the sound and put the lectures in the orders with the riverside books as they were meant to be,that wold be heaven for serious students. But in spite of those flaws it's still beautifull


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Feynman Lectures on Physics?

    To me the study of atom and molecules,plus his discussion of quantum he should have been proud of thatp


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Quantum and relativity always has an extreme reaction ,laugh?cry?no, amazed that such things are even possible would be more like it
