Six Easy Pieces by Richard Feynman

138 pages of basic physics as entertainment? Yes.

Written as introductory lectures to the subject for first year University students and then heavily edited for book form.

Feynman's personality and idiosyncratic language shines through. Some maths but not too much for even complete novices to physics.

Quick, clear, simple, elegant.

4 out of 5.
