From the Publisher:

6 NSEP makes learning physics a joyful experience.
Richard P. Feynman was more than a Nobel Prize-winning physicist; he was a prankster, a wit, and one of the greatest science teachers of all time. In this second collection of Feynman's taped Caltech lectures, he brings the difficult, anti-intuitive theories of Einstein down to earth for the science student and science-conscious layperson. When it comes to explaining science, nobody does it better than Feynman. "Feynman's lectures are like Mozart's symphonies. The more demanding they are, the more exhilirating the result. Hearing the Master's voice and rereading these magnificent lectures is one of the great rewards for being scientifically literate at the end of the twentieth century." -- David L. Goodstein, coauthor of FEYNMAN'S LOST LECTURE
