essential Listening

Feynman was blessed with insight and enthusiasm and these lectures are part of a genuinely legendary series given in the early 1960s. The sound quality is poor in lecture one, and you obviously don't get the benefit of the pictures on the blackboard, but once you are past that you get to listen in on an undisputed genius performing before an audience in his natural environment. To anybody excited by the edges of knowledge it is like being offered a recording of Mozart practicing his scales and then jamming with a few mates. What is that worth?

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
