Product description

With genius, passion and unmatched flair, this one-volume "greatest hits" of the Feynman lectures places you in the classroom of one of the twentieth century's most brilliant teachers For more than thirty years, Richard P Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. That text was based on transcriptions of the hundreds of hours of audio recordings made during Feynman's legendary classroom lectures. Now, for the first time on compact disc, the best of these recordings are available in digitally mastered quality. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable topics as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. Timeless and collectible, these unabridged lectures are essential listening not just for students of physics, but for anyone seeking an introduction to the field from the inimitable Richard Feynman.

Richard Feynman played an important role in the development of the atomic bomb during World War II. After the war he went on to teach at Cornell University and the California Institute of Technology, and in 1965 he was awarded the Novel Prize for Physics for his research in quantum electrodynamics. Besides his work as a physicist, Feynman was at various times a raconteur, artist, bongo player and safecracker. He died in 1988.
