Perseus Publishing is proud to announce the latest volume in its series of recorded lectures by the late Richard P. Feynman, lectures originally delivered to his physics students at Caltech and later fashioned by the author into his classic textbook Lectures on Physics.
Volume 18 (Feynman on Flow) includes a discussion of tensors, reflection from surfaces, magnetic materials, elasticity, and the flow of both wet and dry water.

no body would read all lectures in this book unless one is a, say, form 5 student*, or as a lucky caltech freshmen. i say i 'finished' this book as a homage to feyman: hey, i know your stuff, in the way you like us to know - i.e, intuitively, hand-wavingly, imaginatively, and, above all, lively. i nearly wept when a jewish professor derived the value of electric charge using your diagram method. that was the high point of my physics education. though i had to leave physics for other things, the three books of your lectures have always stood by my side as a reminder that truth is beauty and beauty, truth.
* as a reviewer said, i wish we had this as secondary text book. if only 漢榮 had it, i would have thrown my body and soul in physics in form 5. instead there were only pedestrian inanities called 'university physics' and thank mr parker of the a-level physics textbook, i did not meet my true love until grad school....Continua
