Figs. cannot be resized, nook is useless for tech books 4 stars for Easy Pieces. But buy hard copy. 1 star for nook!

Feynman is a good writer and explains the principles of physics clearly, but unfortunately his illustrative figures and equations are much too small to be seen, much too small for e-ink to reproduce. This is a fault in the editors of these issues; in the paperback versions they are easy to read. The figures are essential to understanding his explanations.
