The experience of listening to a physicist work out fundamental equations in quantum mechanics for first- or second-year university students would be completely null if it were anyone but Richard Feynman. I don't know anything about the nuts and bolts of physics, and I barely managed to survive 3rd year math, but if you listen to the reasoning it is one inspiring ride because you're watching a great mind at work. Every once in awhile a gem will surface, like, "You see the problem with quantum mechanics isn't solving the equations, it's knowing what they mean...." So, without the math you might be supremely bored by this audio book. On the other hand Feynman is so much fun that you might enjoy the ride.

Audio alone can't do it
Even the genius of Dr Feynman can not explain the esoteric concepts of quantum mechanics by audio alone : accompanying diagrams are a must.
Do not waste time with this: instead buy the book which will have all the diagrams.
