Feynman is a brilliant man and an impeccable character. Though Six Easy Pieces is not for everyone (you can certainly tell that by the mixed reviews.), it is a fantastic look at the basic understanding of physics and it's related properties. The examples can sometimes be difficult to follow as an example referenced could be on a separate page entirely, but doesn't necessarily detract from the lectures. This book is really meant as a lecture to first year physics students and also provides great overview for methods used in upper level physics courses, which makes the examples not always play well with the formatting. His intent with this book is to be able for students with an idea of the course to be able to gain a basic understanding of physics with one lecture, narrowed down from his well known lectures on physics. His unique style of speaking is portrayed perfectly in writing and keeps you engaged throughout the entire book.
