Sound quality is soooooo bad

First 2 lectures are of very poor quality audio!

However the lectures were Feynman at his best making listening to the last two lectures great.

Wonderful introduction to Physics.

Like water for the soul of the non-academic scientist. This is actually a recording of real lectures given by Feynman himself. You get to hear his explanations in his words. Covers all the basics.

If it doesn't follow experiment, it's not science!
