Richard Feynman's "Six Easy Pieces: The Fundamentals of Physics Explained" is an essential introduction to the world of physics by one of its greatest teachers and icons. Richard Feynman inspired people around the world with his scientific brilliance, endless curiosity about the world and unorthodox outlook on life. Here he guides the reader through the very basics of physics, including atoms, energy, force, the relation of physics to other sciences, the theory of gravitation and quantum behaviour. Presenting complex ideas in simplified, understandable terms and using illustrations such as shooting bullets, waves on a seashore and even Dennis the Menace's building blocks, "Six Easy Pieces" gets to the heart of how the world works. "One of the very best introductions to physics for the uninitiated". ("Independent"). "If one book was all that could be passed on to the next generation of scientists it would undoubtedly have to be "Six Easy Pieces"". (John Gribbin). "With Feynman as a guide, you can't help wondering why everyone is not turning to science". ("Guardian"). "The greatest physicist of the twentieth century". ("Sunday Times"). Richard P. Feynman (1918-88) was one of this century's most brilliant and original thinkers. He taught at Cornell and the California Institute of Technology and received the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work in quantum electrodynamics. Books by Feynman published by Penguin include "QED", and "The Character of Physical Law".

“Thank You Mr Feynman”

Six Easy Pieces is a extraordinary introduction to physics and, as Paul Davies opines in his opening remarks (p.xi), an even more extraordinary introduction to Richard Feynman: how one envies those fortunate enough to... More
