An outstanding communicator, Richard P. Feynman inspired a generation of students with his energetic, unorthodox style of teaching. Drawn from his celebrated and landmark text Lectures on Physics, SIX EASY PIECES reveals Feynman's distinctive style while introducing the essentials of physics to the general reader. The topics explored include atoms, the fundamentals of physics and its relation to other sciences, the theory of gravitation and quantum behaviour. 'If one book was all that could be passed on to the next generation of scientists it would undoubtedly have to be SIX EASY PIECES' - John Gribbin, New Scientist
