Contains appropriate physic content, recipient happy with content- PhD in physics. Great value for cost with being paperback, useful book.

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!

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.

In my experience nothing quite gives you the intuitive understanding of concepts in physics like Feynman's lectures do. He really does have an inimitable lucidity in his teaching style. However it's important to note that these are definitely not suitable as a main text for a first time student, partly due to the lack of worked and set exercises. Instead, these are best used to flesh out understanding of concepts after visiting them in other places. While many textbooks can sometimes gloss over the approach to important results, with Feynman you know that you'll understand both the result and the way to get there.
