In the 24 engaging lectures of The Nature of Matter, no scientific background is needed to appreciate such miracles of everyday life as a bouncing rubber ball or water's astonishing power to dissolve. Moreover, the study of matter has led directly to such inventions as semiconductor circuits for computers, new fabrics for clothes, and powerful adhesives for medicine and industry.

I was really satisfied with the breadth of topics and the depth of explanations. He was also very good at tying concepts together throughout the series while keeping me interested in his direction. I highly recommend this lecture series as a very solid baseline for understanding our world.
