Book Description

20 Oct 2011
'The whole thing was basically an experiment,' Richard Feynman, looking back on the origins of these lectures, said late in his career. It turned out to be a hugely successful one, spawning books that have remained a definitive introduction to all physics for decades. And now, 'Basic Books' is proud to publish the complete, error-free, and authorised collection of the late Richard P. Feynman's lectures. As a fundamental aspect of our knowledge of the physical world, quantum mechanics remains a vital subject in physics. Feynman begins with the ideas of amplitudes and the abstract notion of a state in Volume I, before moving on to the study of two-state systems in Volume II. The novel approach in Volume III rounds out and builds upon the material developed in the earlier lectures, while remaining independent of the first two. Timeless and collectible, the lectures are essential reading and listening, not just for students of physics, but for anyone seeking an introduction to the field from the inimitable Richard Feynman.

More About the Author

Richard Feynman was, until his death in 1988, the most famous physicist in the world. Only an infinitesimal part of the general population could understand his mathematical physics, but his outgoing and sunny personality, his gift for exposition, his habit of playing the bongo drums, and his testimony to the Presidential Commission on the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster turned him into a celebrity.

Freeman Dyson, of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, called him 'the most original mind of his generation', while in its obituary The New York Times described him as 'arguably the most brilliant, iconoclastic and influential of the postwar generation of theoretical physicists'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides intuition and insight 26 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Outdated and without any exercises. Yet, it's more than just the name that makes Feynman a vital part of everyone's library. The intuition one gains by reading these lectures is irreplaceable. I believe that reading them should be an integrated part of everyone's Physics education, although by no means should it be the primary source of information. It reads like a book, it's well written, and quite unorthodox in it's approach. But it provides insight by the handful. You know... it's Feynman!

5.0 out of 5 stars What can be said? 30 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Feynman lectures are THE lectures on Physics. I have used these as extra study material for my own degree, using it to fill in the details that my course does not have. I would certainly recommend to anyone!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well printed for the price 21 Mar 2012
By Chris
Well printed, better than I thought. I bought these books to review the basic physics because of its nice structure. But I have to say, it may not be suitable for beginners(such as first year uni student) to use as a main text book, text books should have more examples and exercises.
