Quantum electrodynamics - or QED, for short - is the revolutionary theory that explains how light and electrons interact. Thanks to richard Feynman and his colleagues, who won the Nobel Prize for their ground-breaking work in this area, it is also one of the rare parts of physics that is known for sure, a theory that has stood the text of time. Based on a series of lectures delivered to the general public at the University of California, Feynman here wittily explains the theory of quantum electrodynamics, the central aspect of much of modern physics.

Quantum electrodynamics (QED) is the most successful scientific theory of the 20th century. Its inventor, Feynman, was the greatest teacher of physics in the 20th century. Put the two together, and you have the most definitive insight into what 20th-century physics was all about. (Kirkus UK)
