"Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!": Adventures of a Curious Character

Adventures of a Curious Character

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

A New York Times bestseller—the outrageous exploits of one of this century's greatest scientific minds and a legendary American original.

Richard Feynman, winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, thrived on outrageous adventures. Here he recounts in his inimitable voice his experience trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek; cracking the uncrackable safes guarding the most deeply held nuclear secrets; accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums; painting a naked female toreador. In short, here is Feynman's life in all its eccentric—a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, and raging chutzpah.

Customer Reviews

Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman

A bestselling autobiography by one of the funniest physicists America ever produced.

Really good book

Worth the money, I didn't know much about Feynman but he's really a likable guy who's made some important discoveries. A page turner for sure.

Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman

Pure Feynman! Rough edges with absolute intellectual honesty. A good way to get to know a very interesting human being and worth the time in measuring yourself against his criteria.
