    " Very informative and very fun to read. I never imagined Feynman had such a powerful accent. "

    " Quirky approach to physics. Excellent as a supplement; I wouldn't recommend this as your first approach to physics. "

    " Great introduction to quantum mechanics, assuming you already know a bunch of applied math/mathematical physics. Feynman is engaging and tries really hard to reach the first-time student of the subject, but the presentation and language are a bit dated now. "

    " This is an excellent set of physics lectures. Feynman was very talented at right to heart of the matter and making everything seem obvious. "
