What if you are someone like me?
I think the Susskind lectures are priceless. He hits the intended audience really well. Physics is just a hobby, I'm an old fart and I have no expectation of ever mastering anything of it. I just want to know more and more about all of it. I don't really care about how fast it goes.
Those lectures are a huge inspiration, to once in a while study a bit more deeply by looking in the books and do some tests etc.
I can understand that young students have no use for him, but they are not part of his target audience.
He jumps around yes, and that suits me perfectly ;) You have to love that newyork accent :)
Yes, but you aren't learning physics, you're just being entertained. In the same way that watching basketball on T.V. is not going to make you a good basketball player. That's fine, but to "know" physics is something which requires a long and painful process. If that's all your goal is, then that's fine, but for someone who wants to actually understand and learn physics, they'll find that no matter how closely they pay attention to those lectures that when put to the test they actually understood or absorbed very little of it.
