The Feynman Lectures on Physics Vol 2 by Richard P. FeynmanMy opinion about this book is very similar to the first one. Once again it presents the material in a rather original fashion, which makes it more interesting for who already knows what is going on and more confusing for a beginner.
However, this book is more balanced in my opinion. The more original chapters were in fact on extra material like electricity in atmosphere, the principle of least action, or curved spacetime, which are the ones that a deep understanding is less relevant, and originality make them much more interesting. And the core chapters use more standard methods that makes everything clearer to the beginner. Therefore I believe it works better for the actual intended audience than the first one, but it doesnt loose its unique touch.
A problem that continues is the fact that some of his notation/ideas are outdated, for example, he does not distinguish between covariant and contravariant indices, and also states that some issues with magnetic materials are unresolved when in fact we do know the answer to that now. But I feel those are minor issues.
Overall Id say 4/5 for both a beginner and someone who already knows the material covered.

Timeless and collectible, The Feynman Lectures on Physics are essential reading, not just for students of physics, but for anyone seeking an insightful introduction to the field from the inimitable Richard P. Ranging from basic Newtonian dynamics through such formidable theories as Einstein's relativity, Maxwell's electrodynamics, and Dirac's forumulation of quantum mechanics, these collected lectures stand as a monument to clear exposition and deep insight—and to Feynman's deep connection with the field. Originally delivered to students at Caltech and later fashioned by co-authors Robert B. Leighton and Matthew Sands into a unique textbook, the celebrated Feynman Lectures on Physics allows us to experience one of the twentieth century's greatest minds. This new edition features improved typography, figures, and indexes, with corrections authorized.
