Like any set of oral reflections, The Character of Physical Law has special value as a demonstration of the mind in action. The reader is particularly lucky in Richard Feynman - one of the most eminent and imaginative modern physicists.

Recommended for the Feynman fan.
Feynman was one of the best lecturers in recent history. This lecture is an engaging and intellectually stimulating talk about how science is done, the relationship between science and math, and intriguing ideas from modern physics.
While the narrator is excellent (even his accent is reminiscent of Feynmans), this audiobook is not as engaging as a video recording (such recordings exist). It also lacks the occasional visual figures, but these problems do not detract from the overall quality.
I wouldn't recommend it as your first Feynman book ("Surely You Must Be Joking Mr Feynman" has that laurel), but I would recommend it if you wished his biographies talked more about physics.
