Highlights From 6 Easy Pieces By Richard Feynman

Updated: Jan 27, 2018


Richard Feynman is one of the most famous physicists along with Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton.  Richard worked on the Manhattan project which was crucial to developing the atom bomb during World War II, and he has also written numerous books on physics.  He has a skilled style of writing that allows him to break down a complex subject like physics and teach it in a simple manner.


I just finished reading Six Easy Pieces: Essentials of Physics Explained by Its Most Brilliant Teacher  which summarizes some of the broad topics in physics like quantum mechanics, relativity, atoms, Kepler's laws, and many others.  This book didn't go too much into detail and it didn't have too many complex equations which was exactly what I was looking for.  I wrote down what I underlined in the book below to give you a sense of some of the interesting ideas I came across.
