Book Summary & Description
The Legendary Introduction To Physics From The Subjects Greatest Teacherthe Whole Thing Was Basically An Experiment, Richard Feynman Said Late In His Career, Looking Back On The Origins Of His Lectures.
The Experiment Turned Out To Be Hugely Successful, Spawning A Book That Has Remained A Definitive Introduction To Physics For Decades.
Ranging From The Most Basic Principles Of Newtonian Physics Through Such Formidable Theories As General Relativity And Quantum Mechanics, Feynmans Lectures Stand As A Monument Of Clear Exposition And Deep Insight.
Now, We Are Reintroducing The Printed Books To The Trade, Fully Corrected, For The First Time Ever, And In Collaboration With Caltech.
Timeless And Collectible, The Lectures Are Essential Reading, Not Just For Students Of Physics But For Anyone Seeking An Introduction To The Field From The Inimitable Feynman.
Book Reviews
I completed my last Physics class in 1964, and I still go back to these lectures from time to time simply because theyre a joy to read. OK, Ill admit I spent 35 years developing system software and I have a life long love of math and science, but I think these lectures are accessible to anyone who wants to actually understand what physics is all about. Dr. Feynman is able to present the concepts in a way that gets past the heres the formula, memorize it approach that many introductory presentations have been reduced to. You can read all kinds of popularizations relating to the voodoo of quantum mechanics, the time twisting of relativity, and the unfathomability of the smallest and the largest scales of the universe, but if you want to glimpse the reality behind the magic you need to recognize that a lot of very, very smart people have spent the past few hundred years sorting it out.
Below is the set this review is for The Feynman Lectures on Physics, boxed set: The New Millennium Edition The new edition can be fully read online legally for free. www dot feynmanlectures dot info The errata for all editions can be found in the same website above Below are the better printed edition (use errata from above) The Feynman Lectures on Physics: Commemorative Issue, Three Volume Set The Feynman Lectures on Physics including Feynmans Tips on Physics: The Definitive and Extended Edition The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Three Volume Set The Feynman Lectures on Physics (3 Volume Set) (Set v) The Feynman Lectures on Physics (Three Volume Set) Basically any edition other than the Millennium hardcover or paperback edition should be good used with the errata posted above.

Speaking with the editor of the Feynman Lectures, he informs me that Amazon has not updated the Kindle software for the iPad to support the newer mobi standard (or Amazon delivers the old . mobi version to iPads instead of the newer . mobi standard?). The following comments are general to the entire Feynman Lectures on Physics set : Volumes 1, 2 & 3 Prosody, philosophy and physics. In fact, some Lectures (chapters) point to previous Lectures for review – helpful if you want to start from the middle. In fact, this reviewer finds the coverage of mathematics (which contains many proofs) to be as lucid and wellreasoned as the Physics content!For putting together a working knowledge of Physics, in the pursuit of other interests, this reviewer continues to be excited by the lessons in these books.
It took me about a year to finish all three volumes, after which I can say I have followed and remembered roughly 20% of Feynman’s endless derivations. I once read an article by an educator who advocated for early teaching of concepts related to infinitesimals and transfinites, exponentiation and concepts related to rate of growth and decline in nature. To anyone who might not have the time to go through all volumes, I highly recommend chapters 16, 3738, and 52 of the first volume, chapters 14, 18, and 30 of the second volume, and chapters 18 of the third volume. First rate stuff, but DO NOT READ if you want to get a good degree these days, since the methods of introducing some of the subjects in these works is quite different to how physics is taught today – particularly the 3rd volume on Quantum Mechanics. . . .
Book Quote
Max had once read in one of his father’s books that some childhood images become engraved in the mind like photographs, like scenes you can return to again and again and will always remember, no matter how much time goes by.

It’s a great way to learn physics Feynman’s way, which means very little problem solving but a lot of deep comprehension and a thematic approach to physics. Also he shows you advance peeks at more advanced science, which you will certainly not get in most undergrad physics textbooks. Although the Feynman Lectures are not always wellpitched for their intended undergraduate audience, the author’s explanations of many physics topics are unsurpassed. The writing is lucid, wellstructured and authoritative, and only let down a little by Feynman’s occasional failure to appreciate the difficulty of the concepts he is setting out. It is enjoyable from start to finish and once you’ve completed a particular subject, it is just like he says it will be: you don’t understand anymore about physics than you did when you started, except you understand more about what you don’t know.
Feynman’s perspective and his intuitive insight to physics was unlike anything I had ever been exposed to. As it turned out, I learned far more about physics from Feynman’s “introduction” than I had learned in 45 years of course work up until that time. Although the topics discussed in Feynman’s “Red Books” are the same as those discussed in the typical three semester series of introductory Physics, each lesson is presented at a much higher conceptual and philosophical level. His idea of an introduction to physics presupposes a mastery of at least one year of calculus and a solid semester of differential equations. On the other hand, students in possession of these prerequisites won’t find a better overview of physics anywhere. Feynman’s intuitive understanding and insightful perspective of physics is absolutely incredible.
I will go so far as to say that a serious student of physics can obtain a complete theoretical education of the subject by studying (and understanding) no more than the following: 1. Feynman’s Lectures (a 3 volume set), 2. the Course of Theoretical Physics by Landau and Lifshitz (a 10 volume set), and 3. the numerous mathematical concepts that are referenced by each volume of these two works, which are available from a study of Arfken, or even better, Morse and Feshbach. Feynman is far too fascinated with obscure physical phenomena for a normal human. No engineer (or science student)can claim to be adept at physics unless he has gone over the evergreen Feynman lectures. Feynman presents Physics in such a way that every common man, without knowledge of even +2 level maths can understand the concepts.
this man is born for physics. . . the language is so clear. . . he starts by raising our first doubts about every notion of physics then slowly clears them. . . extremely “feelable”. . . which is very important as far as understanding is concerned in physicsUseless for a physics class, tops the list of books to read “just for fun”, if you are a dork that is. All volumes of Feynman’s lecture discuss the fundamental laws of Physics in layman terminology which is easy to understand for readers of nonPhysics background. The lectures also discuss the application of these laws of Physics in the world from nanoscale to light year scale. Since the first year of the lectures was 1962 I enjoy hearing what the state of science was when I was a year old.
