David Bodanis demystifies the world's most famous equation, explaining its science and bringing it to life. He makes clear the astonishing array of discoveries and consequences it made possible and its impact on our daily lives. At last, the masses can understand that Einstein did nothing less than open the door to the inner structure of the universe.

If you have ever wondered about the equation E=MC2, this book does an excellent job of explaining it to any novice in physics. Excellently written and presented.

  • The Feynman Lectures on Physics: Volume 1, Quantum Mechanics

  • By: Richard P. Feynman
  • Narrated by: Richard P. Feynman
  • Length: 5 hrs and 31 mins
  • Unabridged
  • Overall
    4 out of 5 stars 511

  • Story
    4 out of 5 stars 240

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.

  • Great lectures, but given at the wrong order

Feynman Lectures

Overall
2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 11-26-06

Hard to follow due to the fact that the lectures are in front of a blackboard and Mr. Feynman uses the blackboard to explain many of his key points. Would be a very good if it were video and the listener could see the blackboard. Without the visual, much of the audio is hard to follow.
