Designed for non-scientists,
Six Easy Pieces is an unparalleled introduction to the world of physics by one of the greatest teachers of all time.
The late Richard P. Feynman was Richard Chace Tolman Professor of Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology. He was awarded the 1965 Nobel Prize for his work on the development of quantum field theory. He was also one of the most famous and beloved figures of the 20th century, both in physics and in the public arena.

Richard Feyman's view of the world is always worth listening to, even with concepts you through you already understood you discover that, no, you didn't quite. The recording however is not so good as it is the original that they took from his lectures in the 60s. Some parts are very difficult to listen to especially if you have poor quality ear pieces. I found it better through my stereo. Some of the lecture also references to work he writes on the board but, of course you can not see it. Ironically you can hear him chalking it out on the board. The information on it is, as you would expect from Feyman, excellent.
The quality of the narrative content is excellent - that is - that which I can hear. Some of the segments, even when played through a high quality stereo system, are almost inaudible. Some of the segments are in "The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Volume 1, Quantum Mechanics" which I already purchased. Really disappointed that iTunes wouldn't have at least cleaned this audio up before selling it to the unsuspecting loyal customer base.
Not so good
The audio quality is atrocious. You can just watch these for free on YouTube with much better audio, and video!
