Feynman's Lost Lecture Feynman's Lost Lecture: The Motion of Planets Around the Sun by David L. Goodstein, Judith R. Goodstein
. In 1964 Richard Feynman delivered a lecture to the Caltech freshman class, "The Motion of Planets Around the Sun"--why the planets move elliptically, as Isaac Newton had discovered 300 years earlier. The subject of this lecture was the watershed discovery that separated the ancient world from the modern. In this book/CD package, Feynman's lecture has been reconstructed and explained in meticulous, accessible detail, together with a history of ideas of the planets' motions. Buy this book

Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen Scientist by Richard Phillips Feynman
. The Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen Scientist collects three previously unpublished lectures by physicist Richard Feynman. There's plenty of scientific illumination here for the general reader, and more remarkably, some fantastic ruminations on the relationships among science, religion, politics, and everyday life. Feynman is especially sensitive to the relationships between scientific skepticism, faithful doubt, and ideological flexibility. Buy this book

Genius Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman by James Gleick
. If you've read any of Richard Feynman's wonderful autobiographies you may think that a biography of Feynman would be a waste of your time. Wrong! Gleick's Genius is a masterpiece of scientific biography--and an inspiration to anyone in pursuit of their own fulfillment as a person of genius. Deservedly nominated for a National Book Award, underservedly passed over by the committee in the face of tough competition, and very deservedly a book that you must read. Buy this book

No Ordinary Genius: The Illustrated Richard Feynman by Richard Phillips Feynman, Christopher Sykes (Editor)
. This photo-album tribute presents a series of quick-but-intimate portraits through photographs of Feynman and friends and a selection of entertaining and revealing excerpts from interviews and conversations. The pictures and text are from the documentaries independent filmmaker Sykes made about Feynman's life and science. Buy this book

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman 'Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!': Adventures of a Curious Character by Edward Hutchings (Editor), Ralph Leighton, Richard Phillips Feynman
. This book is much more about Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman than about physics. He was a remarkable character indeed, I knew him at Caltech. However, if he had done the "waitress trick" with any waitress I've worked with, he wouldn't have lived long enough to write this book. Don't try that at home, kids. But read the book and enjoy.

'What Do You Care What Other People Think?': Further Adventures of a Curious Character by Ralph Leighton, Richard Phillips Feynman
. A thoughtful companion volume to the earlier Surely You Are Joking Mr. Feynman!. Perhaps the most intriguing parts of the book are the behind-the-scenes descriptions of science and policy colliding in the presidential commission to determine the cause of the Challenger space shuttle explosion; and the scientific sleuthing behind his famously elegant O-ring-in-ice-water demonstration. Not as rollicking as his other memoirs, but in some ways more profound. Buy this book

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter by Richard Phillips Feynman
. QED means Quantum Electrodynamics, the theory that describes the quantum behavior of light so successfully that it can account for the tiniest variations in atomic spectra. Feynman was one of the originators of the theory and invented the Feynman diagram to ease calculations. Here he explains it in ordinary language with his famous charm. Buy this book

The Feynman Lectures on Physics The Feynman Lectures on Physics: Commemorative Issue by Richard Phillips Feynman, Matthew L. Sands, Robert B. Leighton
. This series commemorates the 25th anniversary of the intial release of The Feynman Lectures on Physics, a classic introduction to the study of physics. The three volume set is based upon a course of lectures in introductory physics given by Professor Richard Feynman at the California Institute of Technology durng 1961 and 1962. Three hardcover volumes in a slipcase. Buy this book

Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher (Helix Book) by Paul Davies (Introduction), Robert B. Leighton (Editor), Richard Phillips Feynman
. This set, which includes 6 compact discs, couples a book containing the six easiest chapters from Richard Feynman's landmark work, Lectures on Physics--specifically designed for the general, non-scientist reader--with the actual recordings of the late, great physicist delivering the lectures Caltech frosh in 1961-62. Buy this book

Six Not-So-Easy Pieces: Einstein's Relativity, Symmetry, and Space-Time (Helix Books) by Robert B. Leighton (Editor), Matthew Sands (Editor), Richard Phillips Feynman, Roger Penrose (Introduction), Jeffrey Robbins (Editor)
. The spectacular success of the book and audio versions of Six Easy Pieces caused a worldwide clamor for more. The result is these six additional lectures. These are challenging lectures -- Feynman's fellow Caltech professors sat in on this course. Buy this book

Quantum Electrodynamics Quantum Electrodynamics (Advanced Book Classics) by Richard Phillips Feynman
. This book is written at the graduate level and explains relativistic quantum mechanics and the quantum field theory of the electromagnetic force, a field which Feynman himself was a pioneered. It's a great book that is still relevant today. Feynman invented the calculation technique that became known as the Feynman diagram, and it's always good to learn from the source. Buy this book
