Default Feynman Lectures...Opinions sought.



Hello Folks,

I don't know much about physics. I'm lookin' to buy some books.

My wife wants the a nice, hardcover set of the Feynman Lectures, so I
was pricin' 'em.

Well, I found a new '89 edition three volume set for $81 on eBay. On
Amazon, I found that there's a 2005 revised edition of this set to have
come out a few months back, priced at $122 and with some extra (some
Feynman's Tips of Physics). Presumably, this new edition "includes
extensive corrections Feynman and his colleagues received and Caltech
approved."

So, everyone, whatdya think? Is the '89 edition okay? Or am I better
off forkin' over 40 bucks more for these "extensive corrections"?

Opinions sought.

Junius

If it's something your wife wants, you should of course get the best
and most impressive version for her. The point of the gift is what you
think of her, not what you think of the book.
