9780140276664: Six Easy Pieces: Fundamentals of Physics Explained (Penguin Press Science)

Richard Feynman's Six Easy Pieces: The Fundamentals of Physics Explained is an essential introduction to the world of physics by one of its greatest teachers and icons.

Richard Feynman inspired people around the world with his scientific brilliance, endless curiosity about the world and unorthodox outlook on life. Here he guides the reader through the very basics of physics, including atoms, energy, force, the relation of physics to other sciences, the theory of gravitation and quantum behaviour.

Presenting complex ideas in simplified, understandable terms and using illustrations such as shooting bullets, waves on a seashore and even Dennis the Menace's building blocks, Six Easy Pieces gets to the heart of how the world works.
