Book Review: Read it

Rating: 5 stars

This book is great! There isn’t much to say here that hasn’t already been said. If you have a desire to learn about quantum mechanics but you lack a science background, this book simply cannot be beat. This is the only book that gives you the real deal. A Brief History, Elegant Universe, etc. all gloss over the topic. But don’t fool yourself. Even though Feynman is a great teacher, this is not easy stuff. If you hope to really grasp what Prof. Feynman is saying you are going to have to really think about it. I remember reading one page over and over again for an hour until I grasped one concept. But it is definitely worth it in the end. I believe that anyone of above average intelligence (which I believe most people who read this sort of book are) should be able to fully grasp the ideas presented in this book). Enjoy.

Book Review: Enigma

Rating: 5 stars

I personally did not actually read this book although i am positive it is excellent. I may not be a physicist (although i wish to become one… and richard P. feynman is who i can only dream to become like) but i did discuss quantum electrodynamics with a physicist and ironically he could not even pronounce it and i could. i also have a question for future people who post and know a lot about feynman; did he work on “enigma” during world war 2?

Book Review: A QED Teaser

Rating: 5 stars

An excellent explanation of QED with no formalism. Good diagrams are used in place of the mathematics, with clear explanations and nice analogies to make this subject very accessible and understandable.

This will certainly get the mind wheels turning, a very stimulating and fun read.
