it was amazing

I'm re-reading this book, after reading (most of) it as assigned material in 2004 for HMC's required freshman-year physics course on quantum. It's written in a very approachable way by one of the most prominent (and well-loved) American physicists in history. If you ever want to be blown away by how the world works, read this book! You will certainly find the world of quantum electrodynamics (which happens to be our world) to be incomprehensible… but that's OK, because as Feynman explains, everyone finds it incomprehensible, himself included.
