And indeed he was "always in the shop," in the lab, doing what he did so well. A man of talents innumerable, he was at his best as a teacher - - making you a smarter you by sitting in his presence and listening, while he explained why objects move about each other in elliptical orbits, and not in nice perfect circles as some might have wished. He was a New Yorker, he loved baseball and music and making people laugh and learn. This was no distant genius. He was easy to understand, easy to admire. If you have even a passing interest in the subject of physics, there can be no better introduction than class with Professor Feynman. Here are some magnificent classes.

Why aren't there more teachers like this?

Obviously this would be better as video, and I could also be critical that the lectures cover what most people who find this will already have heard in university (he doesn't go deeply into his own ground-breaking research). But that is all nitpickery. These lectures are like pure gold. No, more like a golden egg laying goose because you can listen again, and pass on your learning to others. We need more Mr Feynmans in this world...
