Product description

Review

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, New Scientist

One of the greatest minds of the twentieth century--New York Review of Books

The essence of physics and Feynman. No jargon, just ideas, excitement, and the straight dope. And real answers, like 'we don't know.'--Stephen Wolfram

The most original mind of his generation.--Freeman Dyson

About the Author

Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988) was the Richard Chace Tolman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology. He was awarded the 1965 Nobel Prize for his work on the development of quantum field theory. He was also one of the most famous and beloved figures of the twentieth century, both in physics and in the public arena.
