Feynman Simplified gives mere mortals access to the fabled Feynman Lectures on Physics.
As a Caltech undergraduate, I had the amazing opportunity to learn physics directly from the greatest scientist of our age. He had an uncanny ability to unravel the most complex mysteries, reveal the key underlying principles, and provide a profound understanding of nature. His style and enthusiasm were as important as the facts and equations.
It’s a great shame that so many had so much difficulty with the original course. I hope to help change that and bring Feynman’s genius to a wider audience.
For those who have struggled with the Big Red Books, and for those who were reluctant to take the plunge, Feynman Simplified is for you.
Feynman Simplified makes Feynman’s lectures easier to understand without watering down his brilliant insights.
Feynman Simplified is self-contained; you don’t need to go back and forth between this book and The Feynman Lectures on Physics.
Feynman Simplified: Physics 1A covers about the first quarter of Volume 1, the freshman course, of The Feynman Lectures on Physics.
There is no better way to truly learn physics than from a truly great physicist, Feynman taught us more than just physics — he taught us how to think like a physicist.
