Most of my knowledge of physics comes from popular science books. I can't help it, I don't know where to turn, I KNOW they aren't real physics but I can't find anything else. Feynman's lectures, yes, but I understand about 10% of these and don't know why as they're supposed to be "introductory" physics texts. I'm sure the problem isn't my intelligence, as my IQ is 147 (I know IQ isn't everything but I don't have anything else to show I should be able to deal with physics?) I don't know anything about the American system of education either, I'm a Brit... Should I leave these forums? Can anyone help me? I've been praised for a talent in physics from a very early age, and I don't know why I'm drowning here.
