I have been reading Nobel Lectures in physics to learn from the most brilliant, especially how their epoch-making ideas struck them in a compelling way (if you can propose more than one candidate theory for any physics then probably all of them are wrong). Below are some of my comments on them and their discoveries that you can download:
