Review: The Feynman Lectures on Physics
User Review  Marty Babits  GoodreadsI am a nonscientist who is a huge fan of Richard Feynman. Although his more autobiographical pieces are extremely readable and enjoyable, I found this book hard to grasp. I do intend to give it another try at some point. Read full review
