Product description

Review

"One of the greatest minds of the twentieth century"--New York Review of Books

"The essence of physics and Feynman. No jargon, just ideas, excitement, and the straight dope. And real answers, like 'we don't know.'"--Stephen Wolfram

"The most original mind of his generation."--Freeman Dyson

"If one book was all that could be passed on to the next generation of scientists it would undoubtedly have to be Six Easy Pieces."--John Gribbin, New Scientist
