For more than 30 years, Richard P. Feynman's three-volume Lectures on Physics has been known worldwide as the classic resource for students and professionals alike. Ranging from the most basic principles of Newtonian physics through such formidable theories as Einstein's general relativity, superconductivity, and quantum mechanics, Feynman's lectures stand as a monument of clear exposition and deep insight. This timeless audio serves as a comprehensive library of essential physics by a legend in science.
Volume 5 makes up a beginning course in Energy and Motion, and includes chapters on the conservation of energy, motion, Newton's laws of dynamics, the conservation of momentum, and work and potential energy.

has lots of children who love listening to books...
I'd like to give this 5 stars, because the content is excellent and Feynman is great to listen to. However, there is a lot of maths being chalked onto the blackboard as he speaks, and although he explains the maths well, it is impossible to completely get it without seeing it.
"This shouldn't been offered as an audio book"
If those lectures were edited for listeners who can't see the board and the tools used in class.
Just minor editing can make it a lot better. All they needed to do is drop the parts where Feynman visually explain the material with some audio friendly explanations.
