With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman! But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. In addition to solving the mystery of liquid helium, Feynman has been commissioned to paint a naked female toreador and asked to crack the uncrackable safes guarding the atomic bomb's most critical secrets. He has traded ideas with Einstein and Bohr, discussed gambling odds with Nick the Greek, and accompanied a ballet on the bongo drums. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life. Download and start listening now!

    " This was a kid who was in the middle of the making of the atomic bomb. But the picture you get here is of a restless and youthful soul open to hard work tempered by good fun. How can't you like the guy. "

    " This book chronicles the oddities that embodied the brilliant (and socially awkward) Richard Feynman. Really endearing tales that only lend to the charm and wit that encompassed his narrative. "
