Used these classic texts as a freshman physics major at New Mexico Tech. Very challenging books, but provide insights into the world of physics and the workings of the great mind of Richard Feynman!

Feynman really focuses on magnetism and how matter has its own magnetic field, and electricity. It also talks about how magnetism is always present throughout the universe and about how it affects matter. Feynman also has multiple experiments in which the concepts that are being taught were proven. The book also has some practice questions within the lecture so that the reader can practice their new knowledge. 1 thing I didn't like about this is that there weren't any of his video lectures on th ...more

Feyman's lectures on physics are the first place I go to when reviewing fundamental physics; they are typically clear and accessible. The mathematics are at the level of basic calculus for the most part, which is also welcome; even one long rusty on the specifics of calculus can still remember the basics and particularly appreciate the expressive power of Newton's employment of Occam's Razor in the form of mathematical tools used to describe the change inherent in dynamical physical models. This ...more

I neither read the book, nor do I have enough knowledge to understand the recently published article called Surprises of the Faraday Cage by Lloyd N. Trefethen, but it seems that even a genius like Feynman makes mistakes sometimes in his field of work.
And that’s sort of comforting.

If someone asks me to recommend some literature relating to science which is at the same time interesting and hardcore, I will recommend these Feynman lectures and QED (Quantum Electro-Dynamics) right off.
This a great reading and highly recommended if you want yourself to get interested in Quantum physics at a whole new level.
Here are video lectures by none other than "Mr Richard Feynman" himself.

Hard to gain adequate comprehension but that's not Mr. Feynman's fault. Complex topic better understood by facile young brains..:-).

Richard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle physics (he proposed the parton model). For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Pr ...more

“The attempts to try to represent the electric field as the motion of some kind of gear wheels, or in terms of lines, or of stresses in some kind of material have used up more effort of physicists than it would have taken simply to get the right answers about electrodynamics. It is interesting that the correct equations for the behavior of light were worked out by MacCullagh in 1839. But people said to him: 'Yes, but there is no real material whose mechanical properties could possibly satisfy those equations, and since light is an oscillation that must vibrate in something, we cannot believe this abstract equation business'.” 2 likes
