Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman

by Richard P Feynman


This is an amazing story of the life of the physicist and Nobel Prize (which he hated) winner Richard P. Feynman. He was an amazing professor and physicist. He had a curious character and it seems like that was what took him places in life. He never ceased to amazed himself, to ask questions, to learn and doubt. He was part of the special team of Los Alamos that built the atomic bomb. He had special interest on physics and was really focused when that topic emerged. He knew that was what he cared the most in life. He usually was defiant with authority and was clever about it. Overall whenever something got his attention not only did he put a lot of time and thinking into it. He tried to improve deliberately and also was very patient. He relates how he allowed himself to play and invent things just for his entertainment. He was an admirable guy, it is a pretty amazing book. Bill Gates loved himself so much that he tried to save and make available a lot of his work and even wrote the introduction for this book. (!)
