    "Missing visuals"

    This material is mainly for advanced physics students and is math heavy. That's probably not a problem for the typical person looking for Feynman lectures. The problem is that there are no accompanying visual aids. Some audiobooks come with pdf downloads and I think this one should too because he is drawing on a board as he speaks. Not being able to see the examples and formulas detracts from one's ability to absorb the material.

    He speaks quickly, at a speed that makes this suitable for a quiet room where you can take notes and create your own visuals. Unless you're as smart as Feynman himself, listening in your car or while exercising will probably be a challenge. He doesn't skimp on the math so brush up on your differential equations.
