Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman : Adventures of a Curious Character as Told to Ralph Leighton, Paperback / softback Book

Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman : Adventures of a Curious Character as Told to Ralph Leighton Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1965, Richard Feynman was one of the world's greatest theoretical physicists, but he was also a man who fell, often jumped, into adventure.

An artist, safecracker, practical joker and storyteller, Feynman's life was a series of combustible combinations made possible by his unique mixture of high intelligence, unquenchable curiosity and eternal scepticism.

Over a period of years, Feynman's conversations with his friend Ralph Leighton were first taped and then set down as they appear here, little changed from their spoken form, giving a wise, funny, passionate and totally honest self-portrait of one of the greatest men of our age.
