Jeg kan godt lide forordet, hvor baggrunden for forelæsningerne er ridset op. Appendix er to kapitler fra Volume II som bruges meget i dette Volume III. Så det er meget behageligt at de lige er taget med som appendix.

Indeholder "Introduction", "Special Preface", "Feynman's Preface"
"1. Moving Atoms", "2. Basic Physics", "3. The Relation of Physics to Other Sciences", "4. Conservation of Energy", "5. The Theory of Gravitation", "Quantum Behaviour". Og til slut et "Index".
Bogens indhold er hentet fra den lettere ende af de berømte Feynman Lectures on Physics og starter helt fra bunden men med speederen i bund. Visse steder kan man godt se at teksten er fra 1960'erne.
Der er tre forord, hvilket er i overkanten. Det første af Paul Davies med pointen at Feynman var et barn af sin tid, så vi kommer ikke til at se en som ham igen. Det andet er om de stakler, der fulgte forelæsningerne og om de andre stakler, der skulle lave dem til en bog. Og det tredje er Feynmans eget, hvor han fortæller hvad han selv synes om projektet.
Første kapitel om atomer viser nogle af de ting, der er selvfølgelige, hvis man først har fået den tanke at alt er bygget af atomer. Varme og tryk fx. Kapitel to handler om elektricitet og elementarpartiklerne ca anno 1960. Kapitel tre handler om fysiks indflydelse på og fra kemi, biologi, astronomi, geologi, psykologi "The whole universe is in a glass of wine". Kapitel fire handler om energi som en abstrakt størrelse, som man med lidt krumspring kan opfatte som noget konstant. Tankeeksperimenter med reversible løftemaskiner viser at de er det bedste, vi kan håbe på. Brugbar energi er ikke en konstant, så han ser gerne fysikerne få fod på fusion - 150 gallons a minute = USA's samlede energiforbrug på skrivetidspunktet. Kapitel fem snakker om Galileo, Kepler, Newton, Einstein og om at man ikke har nogen ide skabt om hvad gravitation er, men at man har styr på at regne med den. Kapitel seks omhandler kvanteverdenen, hvor vi kun kan beregne odds. Der er en ganske fin gennemgang af dobbeltspalte forsøget med elektroner og hvorfor det giver grå hår i hovedet at tænke over hvordan det kan være sådan. Alle smuthuller i Heisenbergs usikkerhedsrelation ser ud til ikke at virke.
Feynman er i det hele taget god til også at skrive hvad man ikke ved, fx hvor meget tryk skal der til for at få x liter vand igennem y meter vandrør, hvis der opstår turbulens.
