Book Review: "Advanced Quantum Mechanics" by Freeman Dyson

Do I feel dumb, stupid and uneducated or what.

This is a reprint of Freeman Dysons lecture notes from 1951.

My God It's Full Of Equations.

Hundreds and hundreds of equations some of which were a page long.

I loved it even though I felt like a complete idiot 90% of the time.
Each time I thought I might catch up, I was dumbstruck by the sheer enormity of the maths.

I seriously need to get a handle on the mathematical basics first because the use of the word "Advanced" in the title should have warned me I would be out of my depth very quickly.
