From his early years as a student in Trinity College, Cambridge, to his studies with Hans Bethe at Cornell University, Freeman Dyson has proven himself to be the best mathematician from England and the best English physicist since Dirac. In the fateful year 1949, Dyson published two ground-breaking papers in the Physical Review, The radiation theories of Tomonaga, Schwinger, and Feynman and The S matrix in quantum electrodynamics. The first demonstrated the equivalence of the Schwinger-Tomonaga approach and the Feynman path integral method in quantum electrodynamics. The second crystalized the Feynman rules for scattering diagrams. Here for the first time, Dyson's lectures at Cornell University shortly after, in 1951, are presented. Brimming with youthful vigour and excitement from the golden years of QED, highly original in their approach, the student is taken for a thrilling ride through the Dirac equation, its manifold consequences, to field theory, the Dyson graphs, and finally to the Feynman diagrams.

I downloaded the free stuff on student-friendly QFT. It is way better.
