Product description

Review

Proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time.

Quintessential Feynman--funny, brilliant, bawdy . . . enormously entertaining.

A storyteller in the tradition of Mark Twain. He proves once again that it is possible to laugh out loud and scratch your head at the same time.

Buzzes with energy, anecdote and life. It almost makes you want to become a physicist.

A chain reaction is not a bad analogy for Feynman's life. From a critical mass of gray matter it goes off in all directions, producing both heat and light.

Feynman is legendary among his colleagues for his brilliance and his eccentricity.... It's hard not to smile all the way through.
