Summary: "Physics Nobelist Feynman simply cannot help being original. In this quirky, fascinating book, he explains to laymen the quantum theory of lighta theory to which he made decisive contributions. "--The New Yorker "Feynman's lectures must have been marvellous and they have been turned into an equally entrancing book, a vivid introduction to QED which is leavened and enlivened by his wit. Anyone with a curiosity about physics today should buy it, not ...show moreonly to get to grips with the deepest meaning of quantum theory but to possess a slice of history.
