This shouldn't been offered as an audio book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If those lectures were edited for listeners who can't see the board and the tools used in class.
Just minor editing can make it a lot better. All they needed to do is drop the parts where Feynman visually explain the material with some audio friendly explanations.

Lots of Maths you can't see

I'd like to give this 5 stars, because the content is excellent and Feynman is great to listen to. However, there is a lot of maths being chalked onto the blackboard as he speaks, and although he explains the maths well, it is impossible to completely get it without seeing it.
