Finally a Reason....

...to consider getting an MP3 player: Feynman lectures on Physics.

Let's see, what might a Friday random 10 might look like:

  1. Brownian Movement
  2. Ferromagnetism
  3. Spin One Half
  4. The Hamiltonian Matix
  5. Transients
  6. Conservation of Energy
  7. Inside Dielectrics
  8. Space-Time
  9. Symmetry and Conservation Laws
  10. The Harmonic Oscillator

For the visually inclined there are also PDFs.

Thanks for passing on the link. Feynman rocks!

I have the CDs for "Six Not-So-Easy Pieces," and they're great.

If you dig Dr. Feynman, you should also check out his autobiography,

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character

and its sequel,

What Do You Care What Other People Think?: Further Adventures of a Curious Character

Just the Jello story (in the first book, I think) makes the purchase well worth the price. Of course, I buy most of my books used via fetchbook.info, so don't usually pay too much.

Thanks for the recommendations. I haven't read these and will add them to the queue.
