As other reviewers have stated this series has a few problems. The first is that the audio was copied from audio tapes as one long CD track without partitions which is a huge pain. The lectures are also all jumbled up into "topic areas", and the listener is left to align them to the chapters in the Feynman Lectures on Physics (the sections to which the commentator on the CD's refers are in these books. If you are learning physics for the first time, you definitely want the books to go along with at the same time (ISBN: 0201021153, or even better get the hardcover).

I bought a set of the lecture tapes to occupy myself during my hour plus drive to and from work, and to referesh my memory of what I learned and forgot from college. Although Mr. Feynman was a great physicist, and I'm sure his lectures were entertaining in person, the taped lectures fall short. Between the constant volume changes in his voice as he thinks while he's speaking, and the changing of nomeclature within the lectures, a lot of the impact is lost by not being able to follow what he is writing on the chalkboard. Get a good book on tape instead.

These lectures are brilliant but useless without the aid of his red books sitting in your lap. It would have been better if the imbecile producers of these lectures had put out videos instead. Not surprising what they did. No one's given them a nobel prize

The BIG question is as follows:

Which CD or tape volums has the Principle of least action lecture?

any help would be mightily appreciated. Please post your response on this page if you want to answer. thanks to all and feynman in particular (sent by god no doubt). I somehow like his QM lectures the best. Is it possible for a human being to know so much.
