The legendary introduction to physics from the subject's greatest teacher

"The whole thing was basically an experiment," Richard Feynman said late in his career, looking back on the origins of his lectures. The experiment turned out to be hugely successful, spawning a book that has remained a definitive introduction to physics for decades. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as general relativity and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. Now, we are reintroducing the printed books to the trade, fully corrected, for the first time ever, and in collaboration with Caltech. Timeless and collectible, the lectures are essential reading, not just for students of physics but for anyone seeking an introduction to the field from the inimitable Feynman.

Modern Classical Physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics

Modern Classical Physics: Optics, Fluids, Plasmas, Elasticity, Relativity, and Statistical Physics Lowest new price: $98.46
Lowest used price: $85.95
List price: $125.00
Author: Kip S. Thorne

This first-year, graduate-level text and reference book covers the fundamental concepts and twenty-first-century applications of six major areas of classical physics that every masters- or PhD-level physicist should be exposed to, but often isn't: statistical physics, optics (waves of all sorts), elastodynamics, fluid mechanics, plasma physics, and special and general relativity and cosmology. Growing out of a full-year course that the eminent researchers Kip Thorne and Roger Blandford taught at Caltech for almost three decades, this book is designed to broaden the training of physicists. Its six main topical sections are also designed so they can be used in separate courses, and the book provides an invaluable reference for researchers.


  • Presents all the major fields of classical physics except three prerequisites: classical mechanics, electromagnetism, and elementary thermodynamics

  • Elucidates the interconnections between diverse fields and explains their shared concepts and tools

  • Focuses on fundamental concepts and modern, real-world applications

  • Takes applications from fundamental, experimental, and applied physics; astrophysics and cosmology; geophysics, oceanography, and meteorology; biophysics and chemical physics; engineering and optical science and technology; and information science and technology

  • Emphasizes the quantum roots of classical physics and how to use quantum techniques to elucidate classical concepts or simplify classical calculations

  • Features hundreds of color figures, some five hundred exercises, extensive cross-references, and a detailed index

  • An online illustration package is available to professors

Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory: The Theoretical Minimum

Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory: The Theoretical Minimum Lowest new price: $15.98
Lowest used price: $8.35
List price: $30.00
Author: Leonard Susskind

The third volume in the bestselling physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory


Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths.

Principles of Magnetic Resonance (Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences)

Principles of Magnetic Resonance (Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences) Lowest new price: $182.00
Lowest used price: $236.05
List price: $219.99
Author: Charles P. Slichter

The first edition of this book was written in 1961 when I was Morris Loeb Lecturer in Physics at Harvard. In the preface I wrote: "The problem faced by a beginner today is enormous. If he attempts to read a current article, he often finds that the first paragraph refers to an earlier paper on which the whole article is based, and with which the author naturally assumes familiarity. That reference in turn is based on another, so the hapless student finds himself in a seemingly endless retreat. I have felt that graduate students or others beginning research in magnetic resonance needed a book which really went into the details of calculations, yet was aimed at the beginner rather than the expert. " The original goal was to treat only those topics that are essential to an understanding of the literature. Thus the goal was to be selective rather than comprehensive. With the passage of time, important new concepts were becoming so all-pervasive that I felt the need to add them. That led to the second edition, which Dr. Lotsch, Physics Editor of Springer-Verlag, encouraged me to write and which helped launch the Springer Series in Solid-State Sciences. Now, ten years later, that book (and its 1980 revised printing) is no longer available. Meanwhile, workers in magnetic resonance have continued to develop startling new insights.

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter (Princeton Science Library)

QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter (Princeton Science Library) Lowest new price: $12.55
Lowest used price: $9.47
List price: $18.95
Author: Richard Feynman

Celebrated for his brilliantly quirky insights into the physical world, Nobel laureate Richard Feynman also possessed an extraordinary talent for explaining difficult concepts to the general public. Here Feynman provides a classic and definitive introduction to QED (namely, quantum electrodynamics), that part of quantum field theory describing the interactions of light with charged particles. Using everyday language, spatial concepts, visualizations, and his renowned "Feynman diagrams" instead of advanced mathematics, Feynman clearly and humorously communicates both the substance and spirit of QED to the layperson. A. Zee's introduction places Feynman’s book and his seminal contribution to QED in historical context and further highlights Feynman’s uniquely appealing and illuminating style.

Solder Joint Reliability Prediction for Multiple Environments

Solder Joint Reliability Prediction for Multiple Environments Lowest new price: $81.86
Lowest used price: $82.32
List price: $159.99
Author: Andrew E. Perkins

Solder Joint Reliability Prediction for Multiple Environments will provide industry engineers, graduate students and academic researchers, and reliability experts with insights and useful tools for evaluating solder joint reliability of ceramic area array electronic packages under multiple environments. The material presented here is not limited to ceramic area array packages only, it can also be used as a methodology for relating numerical simulations and experimental data into an easy-to-use equation that captures the essential information needed to predict solder joint reliability. Such a methodology is often needed to relate complex information in a simple manner to managers and non-experts in solder joint who work with computer server applications as well as for harsh environments such as those found in the defense, space, and automotive industries.

Let Light Guide Your Life

The most important things in life are our health and happiness. Yet most of us are neither healthy nor happy. We have been led to believe that if we think ahead and make the right choices, we can manifest our dreams. Yet despite our best efforts, we still have more disease and discontent than ever before. Is it possible that our essential ideas about life are flawed?

We are all aware of the impact of sunlight on a plant’s growth and development. But few of us realize that a plant actually “sees” where light is emanating from and positions itself to be in optimal alignment with it. This phenomenon, however, is not just occurring in the plant kingdom — humans are also fundamentally directed by light. In Luminous Life, Dr. Jacob Israel Liberman integrates scientific research, clinical practice, and direct experience to demonstrate how the luminous intelligence we call light effortlessly guides us toward health, contentment, and a life filled with purpose.
