Description

Richard Feynman made his name through his revolutionary work in quantum electrodynamics that eventually led to sharing a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965. Arguably, however, it was his charisma and masterful public lectures that introduced his name to the wide audiences. Feynman’s unique and slightly outrageous method of teaching earned him legendary status among both students and laymen audiences. From 1961 to 1963, Feynman delivered a series of lectures at the California Institute of Technology that Six Easy Pieces is based on.

In these classic lessons, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, basic physics, energy, gravitation, quantum mechanics, and the relationship of physics to other topics. With his dazzling and inimitable wit, Feynman presents each discussion with a minimum of jargon. Filled with wonderful examples and clever illustrations, Six Easy Pieces is the ideal introduction to the fundamentals of physics by one of the most admired and accessible physicists of modern times.
