The Feynman Lectures Part 3

This is part of a series on the famous Feynman transcripts, brought to you by Tigerfish Transcribing.  This part of the story of the Feynman Lectures is about how transcripts can make difficult content more accessible.

Part 3:  You get the idea

How do you make complex, unfamiliar ideas intriguing, understandable, and entertaining? Speak about them!

The Feynman Lectures on Physics may be the best-selling physics book ever, and it owes at least some of its magic to the fact that it was made from audio recordings turned into transcripts.

“[The Feynman transcripts] have been studied worldwide by novices and mature physicists alike; they have been translated into at least a dozen languages with more than 1.5 millions copies printed in the English language alone. Perhaps no other set of physics books has had such wide impact, for so long,” says Kip Thorne in his introduction to the New Millennium Edition.

(In case you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, chapters of the Feynman transcripts include “The relation of wave and particle viewpoints,” “The hyperfine splitting in hydrogen,” and “Quantum behavior.”)

 The Feynman Lectures on Physics, first published in 1964, was created from edited verbatim transcripts of lectures by the eminent physicist Richard Feynman, famous for his work on quantum electrodynamics, and for his great ability to explain.
