This is a great follow-on to Six Easy Pieces.
Feynman actually explains the problems with Newton's laws and actually derives and gives the reasoning for Einstein's theories about relativity.
For the layman who has a mathematical background and wants to understand the concept of relativity, this book is an excellent help.
Love all of Richard Feynman's work. I come from a science background so I would likely enjoy this more than someone not interested in the sciences though.Published 2 months ago by GP22
Whereas Six Easy Pieces was a well-written physics primer for lay readers, Six Not-So-Easy Pieces reads like a poorly conceived text book. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Garrett Mccutcheon
