Feynman's books are the best ones to learn Physics, or rather to learn how to manage a physical problem, that does not depend on how many formulas we know. Basically, Feynman teaching's method is not based on explaining all the formulas or all the mathemtical derivation, but he tries is to teach how to think about a physical problem.
I strongly suggest to every student who is attending a Physic course to read "Tips on Physics". It is a pleasure to read and helps to figure out the most important physical concept that a student should have. At the end of the book, there are some nice and challenging exercises. It is not possible to learn Physics without doing exercises!

100 or more years from now Feynman will be valued and admired for all the reasons he is valued and admired right now, and this collection epitomises the breadth and depth of a remarkably gifted man. He never patronises or talks a subject down, but he always respects the reader/listener. Whilst I would not recommend this for a lay reader, anyone with a maths or engineering background will fall in love with physics all over again.
