Picked this up at a used bookstore in Fairfax, Virginia. Who can resist a little Feynman? 


Journal Entry 2 by wingmelydiawing from Centreville, Virginia USA on Wednesday, June 11, 2008

9 out of 10

This was the first Feynman book I've ever read, a fact which is a touch embarrassing given that I have a degree in Physics. It was also probably not the best book to start with, since it is possibly the last book he ever wrote (it was published posthumously). All the same, I thoroughly enjoyed it and now want to pick up everything else he's written. The first part is a variety of stories from his life about his childhood, his first wife, etc. The second and longer part is about the investigation of the Challenger explosion. Having been too young at the time to understand more than that a horrible tragedy had occurred, the descriptions of Feynman's attempts to get to the bottom of things are riveting. He's funny, brilliant, and a touch egocentric, and it all makes for a delightful read. Highly recommended.
