It?s a real pity but the entire first most important segment (first hour plus) of these recordings is absolutely unintelligible. Not the best way to start a lecture series in my humble opinion. After the first lecture it gets better however the frustration does not end there because Richard P. Feynman makes many references to charts, diagrams, black board and other training aids in his lectures and continually makes reference to these charts and to the first unintelligible hour of the lecture. For you die hard collectors this may be a worthwhile investment but I?m more interested in learning at this point.

They don't make it obvious, but these are recordings of a select group of Richard Feynman's actual lectures. They tried to fix up the audio form one damaged reel at the beginning, but its a little rough. For the most part the audio is good to great. Very engaging. Sometimes hard to follow without being able to see his diagrams etc..

Feynman was blessed with insight and enthusiasm and these lectures are part of a genuinely legendary series given in the early 1960s. The sound quality is poor in lecture one, and you obviously don't get the benefit of the pictures on the blackboard, but once you are past that you get to listen in on an undisputed genius performing before an audience in his natural environment. To anybody excited by the edges of knowledge it is like being offered a recording of Mozart practicing his scales and then jamming with a few mates. What is that worth?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
An audiobook that is a recording of a lecture on math of Physics is very hard to follow. Unfortunately, the audio quality of this book is extremely poor which makes it even harder to follow
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Did Six Easy Pieces inspire you to do anything?

Interested listeners of all ages and educational backgrounds will be able to follow along and be left wanting more. Sound quality isn’t an issue.
Feynman is incomparable in his brilliance as a teacher. This Audible version is marred by the bad recording quality of the first lecture and the lack of graphics
