Synopsis

Richard Feynman, one of the worlds greatest theoretical physicists, thrived on adventure. His outrageous exploits once shocked a Princeton deans wife to exclaim: Surely youre joking, Mr. Feynman! In this phenomenal national bestseller, Feynman recounts in his inimitable voice his experiences trading ideas on atomic physics with Einstein and Bohr and ideas on gambling with Nick the Greek, painting a naked female toreador, accompanying a ballet on his bongo drums, and much else of an eyebrow-raising and hilarious nature. Woven together with his views on science, Feynmans life story is a combustible mixture of high intelligence, unlimited curiosity, eternal skepticism, and raging chutzpah.
