It was Feynman’s outrageous method of teaching that earned him legendary status among students and professors of physics. From 1961 to 1963, Feynman, at the Cali Institute of Technology, delivered a series of lectures that revolutionized the teaching of physics around the world. Six Easy Pieces, taken from these famous Lectures on Physics, represents the most accessible material from this series. In these six chapters, Feynman introduces the general reader to the following topics: atoms, basic physics, the relationship of physics to other topics, energy, gravitation, and quantum force.
