Feynman is amazing but the quality is not

As a physicist myself I have amazing admiration for Richard Feymann and like all physicist I have his collected works on my bookshelf. This audio presentation is a recording of Dick Feymann in the 1960's and the audio quality is terrible. It would have been better to either to have recorded the lectures using an actor or picking lectures where the audio quality is much better.

Very difficult to follow

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

An audiobook that is a recording of a lecture on math of Physics is very hard to follow. Unfortunately, the audio quality of this book is extremely poor which makes it even harder to follow

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not possible

How did the narrator detract from the book?
