Publisher's Summary

For more than 30 years, Richard P. Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity, and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. This timeless audio serves as a comprehensive library of essential physics by a legend in science.

Volume 9 makes up a course in time and distance, vectors, characteristics of force, space-time, algebra, and more.

Where to get the Accompanying Text for Free!

These are great lectures. However, I have read a lot of complaints that one cannot see the accompanying formulas or diagrams. There is a very easy solution for this: go to: All you have to do is find the appropriate lecture, and the tapes are copied verbatim from the lecture notes - with the accompanying diagrams for free! That is the actual Cal Tech website, so this is a perfectly legal way of obtaining these lectures. I in fact recommend downloading both the audio and the lecture notes - you get both Feynman's voice and outstanding explanations plus a set of accompanying notes with diagrams that you can look at for free! It's an incredible combination, and I recommend trying both, as you are getting the actual lectures he gave at Cal Tech in the Sixties!

Classic Feynman!

What did you love best about The Feynman Lectures on Physics?

The substance and the fact that it was a pleasant surprise. I almost allowed some other reviews here to talk me out of it but because of who it is, I would rather hear Feynman anyway. So I bought it and what I discovered was the other reviews were not only overly critical but unfair in their assesment of this work. Anytime you transfer from tape to digital there will be quality issues. However it is very clear and the subject matter is timeless. If you love Physics and Feynman you owe this to yourselves. We have too many prima donnas giving critiques that mislead with timeless productions such as this. The only part that disturbed me was the announcer coming in to way too much. Just let the man teach!

Any additional comments?

Im going to buy all of them

Don't Waste Your Money

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The sound quality is absolutely horrible! It makes listening almost impossible. The sound of chairs and people moving around the auditorium make the lecturers voice almost impossible to hear. This is the first book I've ever been disappointed in since I signed up for Audible.

If you’ve listened to books by Richard P. Feynman before, how does this one compare?

This was my first and last book by him.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?


If this book were a movie would you go see it?
