Richard P. He held professorships at both Cornell and the California Institute of Technology. In he received the Nobel Prize for his work on quantum electrodynamics. He died in Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? A sweeping, wide-ranging collection, it presents an intimate and fascinating view of a life in science-a life like no other.
Feynman's antics over the years. He just seemed playful, curious and refreshingly honest. Most people try to hide their weaknesses, especially those in the sciences. Not him. He openly discussed his quirks and personality flaws. He loved what he did and seemed happy.
That showed throughout the book. But he was not refined, cultured or overly full of himself. He cherished his working class upbringing. I found him endearing and funny yet a few of his activities would not have been something that would appeal to me. There was less information on his scientific pursuits and the value of his contributions than I thought there would be still it was a fun read over all.
Chauncey Top Contributor: A work of brilliance communicated with wit and rationality. This is an excellent sampling of Captain Feynman's short works.
Also, the cover is much better than the one pictured here see photos , and the price here is unbeatable. This is definitely a book you want in your library, and this is certainly the place to buy it.
The same thing. One could easily retitle this book "The Pleasure of Finding Feynman. If anyone ever asks me to define a genius, I can do that in one word Knowing a genius isn't something that most of us will encounter in our lives. We may know some very smart people who are much smarter than ourselves. But a genius is so much smarter than those smart people and the rest of us that it makes me wish that I could live in the genius world that he inhabits. A genius is to a normal and even above normal mind as a cat is to a mouse I wish my mind could do what his mind does The next best thing then is to get to know him, and since he is dead the only way to do that is to try to get to know him through what he writes, what he says, his lectures, his humor, his philosophy and his astonishing comtributions to Physics and many other fields.
If I ever had the opportunity to sit down with him for a beer and have a conversation, I really wouldn't say very much at all. What I would do, is to listen as he pulls seemingly unrelated threads and things together to clearly illustrate his point in a way that even a layman can understand; and then I would hope that he had nowhere to go so that he could hang around and do that all over again with subject after subject until my ears were tired.
Listening to his voice and seeing him deliver is just amazing. If you want a taste of Feynman and a glimpse into the mind of a genius, buy and read this book and travel a bit with him. You definitely do not have to be a physicist to take away your own sense of wonder, respect, and just plain joy at meeting Richard Feynman on the printed pages of this book.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. While some parts of this book are very enjoyable and provide a wonderful window into both Feynman's way of thinking, and the historical context the "Los Alamos from Below" section, for example , I found others more difficult.
Still worth reading, absolutely, just don't expect the same level of interest, humor, scientific detail, or just about any other aspect to be consistent from one section to another. This makes sense, as the book is a collection of items given to - and intended for - different audiences at different times. Unfortunately, at least for me, the inconsistencies meant that I could barely put the book down while reading some sections but found myself preferring other reading material over Mr Feynman's musings while working my way through the others.
Can't get enough of reading about this man! A brilliant thinker and a real down to Earth human. Also see the videos of him saying a lot of what is in this book on YouTube-of course! I found him quite amazing. His love of learning and enthusiasm is contagious! Average reading. Just because of he is a great scientist does not automatically correlate to informative writing, profound thought, and insights. See all reviews.
