Review God?

Reviewing Feynman is a little like reviewing God himself. Many physics professors have that regard for Feynman because of his ability to make sense of some of the most complicated knowledge we have and make it relevant to almost anyone. In this collection of excerpts from his lectures at Cal Tech Feynman relates the sciences to physics in a way that will leave you wanting more. Feynman was known for his humor which inundates his brilliant lectures, never boring and opening the door to not only what we know, but also to how little we do. You don't need math skills to understand this book, only a curiosity about the world around you. An excellent work well worth reading several times.
