Publisher's Summary

For more than 30 years, Richard P. Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity, and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. This timeless audio serves as a comprehensive library of essential physics by a legend in science. Volume 6 makes up a course in Kinetics and Heat, and includes chapters on the kinetic theory of gases, brownian motion, applications of kinetic theory, diffusion, the laws of thermodynamics, and illustrations of thermodynamics.

Missing visuals

This material is mainly for advanced physics students and is math heavy. That's probably not a problem for the typical person looking for Feynman lectures. The problem is that there are no accompanying visual aids. Some audiobooks come with pdf downloads and I think this one should too because he is drawing on a board as he speaks. Not being able to see the examples and formulas detracts from one's ability to absorb the material.

He speaks quickly, at a speed that makes this suitable for a quiet room where you can take notes and create your own visuals. Unless you're as smart as Feynman himself, listening in your car or while exercising will probably be a challenge. He doesn't skimp on the math so brush up on your differential equations.
