W. W. Norton & Company #ad - In this lively work that “can shatter the stereotype of the stuffy scientist” Detroit Free Press, Feynman recounts his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets―and much more of an eyebrow-raising nature.

Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. One of the most famous science books of our time, the phenomenal national bestseller that "buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist" Science Digest. Richard P. In his stories, feynman’s life shines through in all its eccentric glory―a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah.

Addison-Wesley Publishing #ad - His career was extraordinarily expansive. Hardback with red jacket and picture of Feynman. Physics for Non-Scientist. In these six chapters, the relationship of physics to other topics, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, gravitation, energy, basic physics, and quantum force.

Physics. With his dazzling and inimitable wit, Feynman presents each discussion without equations or technical jargon. Readers will remember how—using ice water and rubber—Feynman demonstrated with stunning simplicity to a nationally televised audience the physics of the 1986 Challenger disaster. From 1961–1963, feynman, at the california Institute of Technology, delivered a series of lectures that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world.

Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher #ad - It is precisely this ability—the clear and direct illustration of complex theories—that made Richard Feynman one of the most distinguished educators in the world. Six easy pieces, taken from the famous Lectures on Physics, represents the most accessible material from this series. Feynman 1918–1988 was widely recognized as the most creative physicist of the post–World War II period.

From his contributions to the development of the atomic bomb a Los Alamos during World War II to his work in quantum electrodynamics, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1965, Feynman was celebrated for his brilliant and irreverent approach to physics. It was feynman's outrageous and scintillating method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics.

Filled with wonderful examples and clever illustrations, Six Easy Pieces is the ideal introduction to the fundamentals of physics by one of the most admired and accessible scientists of our time.

Six Not-so-easy Pieces: Lectures On Symmetry, Relativity, And Space-time Helix Books

Basic Books #ad - No twentieth-century American scientist is better known to a wider spectrum of people than Richard P. His autobiographies and biographies have been read and enjoyed by millions of readers around the world, while his wit and eccentricities have made him the subject of TV specials and even a theatrical film.

The spectacular reception of the book and audio versions of feynman's Six Easy Pieces published in 1995 resulted in a worldwide clamor for “More Feynman! More Feynman!” The outcome is these six additional lectures, drawn from the celebrated three-volume Lectures on Physics. Feynman 1918–1988—physicist, teacher, author, and cultural icon.

Six Not-so-easy Pieces: Lectures On Symmetry, Relativity, And Space-time Helix Books #ad - . Book cover is in excellent shape. Physics. Hardback with red jacket and picture of Feynman. Physics for Non-Scientist. The notions that the flow of time is not a constant, that the mass of an object depends on its velocity, and that the speed of light is a constant no matter what the motion of the observer, at first seemed shocking to scientists and laymen alike.

Though slightly more challenging than the first six, these lectures are more focused, delving into the most revolutionary discovery in twentieth-century physics: Einstein's Theory of Relativity. No single breakthrough in twentieth-century physics with the possible exception of quantum mechanics changed our view of the world more than that of Einstein's discovery of relativity.

No one—not even einstein himself—explained these difficult, or with more verve and gusto, anti-intuitive concepts more clearly, than Richard Feynman.
