Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics By Its Most Brilliant Teacher by Richard P. FeynmanSix Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher is a publishing first. This set couples a book containing the six easiest chapters from Richard P. Feynmans landmark work, Lectures on Physics—specifically designed for the general, non-scientist reader—with the actual recordings of the late, great physicist delivering the lectures on which the chapters are based. Nobel Laureate Feynman gave these lectures just once, to a group of Caltech undergraduates in 1961 and 1962, and these newly released recordings allow you to experience one of the Twentieth Centurys greatest minds—as if you were right there in the classroom.

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
The Ohio State University. Richard Feynman presents the book Six Easy Pieces to an audience with elementary knowledge of physics and its laws. He illustrates concepts for the average individual by relating the concept to every day events in life. This book explains physics in six sections which include: atoms in motion; basic physics; the relation of physics to other sciences; conservation of energy; the theory of gravitation; and quantum behavior. In the first section Feynman describes the basic atomic theory. He then proceeds to show pictorially what happens when water boils, water evaporates, and when air bubbles get trapped in air.
