|概要||Presents six of the easiest chapters from the Nobel Prize winner's celebrated text Lectures in Physics, originally published in 1963, which comprised the lectures he prepared for undergraduate student... at Caltech in the early 1960s. Addressing key topics in largely qualitative terms without formal mathematics, the six selections discuss atoms in motion, basic physics, the relation of physics to other sciences, conservation of energy, the theory of gravitation, and quantum behavior.

"In these lectures, everything you've ever heard about Feynman's wit and genius comes through". -- John Horgan, author of The End of Science."Want to really understand why time slows, mass increases and length contracts as something approaches light speed, why space has just got to be curved and why it is not only impossible to predict the future, but actually there is no fortune teller who can even tell us the present?' ... Sure this is hard stuff -- the cerebral equivalent of high-impact aerobics...but there is no better explanation for the scientifically literate layman...Just do it". -- The Washington Post Book World
