A challenging, stimulating and fascinating book. Feynman's understanding of the scientific endevour in general and his grasp of detail are impressive. He also avoids the high flown speculations you often get with modern physics and which are really nothing whatever to do with science. I've read and reread this book and I'm still fascinated by his approach, in particular his metaphor of light as a stream of photons being like rain drops - light drops, if you will. I turn this over in my mind often. The book repays with interest the reflection you need to provide to absorb it. The material world behind the facile explanations of media pseudoscience is deeply mysterious and he manages to convey that sense of mystery while at the same time making the phenomena of light, to a degree, intelligible. A highly thought provoking book which I can highly recommend.

Simply the best book you will read on this subject. Prof.Feynman had a knack of explaining difficult subject with great aplomb, in great detail but without expecting you to have a full understanding of his subject. It won`t give you all the answers you may be looking for, but then , we don`t have all the answers for Quantum Electro-Dynamics. This is as good as it gets. The world of the very small is almost unbelievable - but it works just fine without our knowing why it works!

This is an interesting book providing you like - and know a little about - physics.
It is written with enthusiasm for the subject which is often infectious.
A bit tough for a general reader like me (a mere high school maths teacher) - but the book is short and concise - and I found that I got a lot more from a second read of the material.
I suppose things have moved on a little from when Mr Feyman wrote this book (based on lectures he was giving) - but a lot of good solid stuff in the book which is still relevant.

Great but very scientifically minded, don't go in to this if you don't want to learn.

Wonderful. Feynman' style, clear and simple, for a not so simple subject is delightfully straightforward and down to earth.

Great little read explaining some theories very simply! The quality of the printed paper not the best in my opinion.

Interesting topics, but I found the book a bit boring.
