Unintelligible

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.

Excellent - Audio by Richard Feynman

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..
