A new foreword by Kip Thorne, the current Richard Feynman Professor of Theoretical Physics at Caltech, discusses the relevance of the new edition to today's readers. This boxed set also includes Feynman's new "Tips on Physics - "the four previously unpublished lectures that Feynman gave to students preparing for exams at the end of his course. Thus, this 4 - volume set is the complete and definitive edition of "The Feynman Lectures on Physics." Packaged in a specially designed slipcase, this 4 - volume set provides the ultimate legacy of Feynman's extraordinary contribution to students, teachers, researches, and lay readers around the world.Read Less

I'm a physics major and when you're studying for your finals and all the material stumbles together in your head, this makes everything clear and coherent, with wit and truly phenomenal physics along the way, this shows why Richard Feynman is outstanding!!!
Highly recommended to all those curious about the cosmos and love jokes, pictures and beautiful writing.
