Feynman's Tips on Physics: Reflections, Advice, Insights, Practice (Revised)

By Richard P Feynman, Michael Gottlieb, Ralph Leighton
"Feynman's Tips on Physics" is a delightful collection of Richard P. Feynman's insights and an essential companion to his legendary "Feynman Lectures on Physics"
With characteristic flair, insight, and humor, Feynman discusses topics physics students often struggle with and offers valuable tips on addressing them. Included here are three lectures on problem-solving and a lecture on inertial guidance omitted from "The Feynman Lectures on Physics." An enlightening memoir by Matthew Sands and oral history interviews with Feynman and his Caltech colleagues provide firsthand accounts of the origins of Feynman's landmark lecture series. Also included are incisive and illuminating exercises originally developed to supplement "The Feynman Lectures on Physics," by Robert B. Leighton and Rochus E. Vogt.
"Feynman's Tips on Physics" was co-authored by Michael A. Gottlieb and Ralph Leighton to provide students, teachers, and enthusiasts alike an opportunity to learn physics from some of its greatest teachers, the creators of "The Feynman Lectures on Physics."

Born in the Bronx and living in New York for many years, Michael Gottlieb is the author of fifteen books including MEMOIR AND ESSAY, NEW YORK, GORGEOUS PLUNGE, LOST AND FOUND (containing the seminal 9/11 poem "The Dust"), THE LIKES OF US, and MEMOIR AND ESSAY. In the Seventies he helped the influential Language poetry magazine, Roof.
