Zee’s introduction to Feynman’s QED

I recently came across the 2006 edition of Richard Feynman’s wonderful book “QED: The Strange Theory of Light and Matter,” published by Princeton University Press. This book deserves a blog post all to itself, but here I only want to point out the shiny new feature of this most recent edition–surely a publishing scam designed to make me buy the book twice–which is an excellent introduction by Anthony Zee.

Fortunately, it turns out that I don’t need to re-buy the book since Zee has published the introduction online. I recommend reading Zee’s frank and humorous introduction to any aspiring physicists or physics fans out there.
