A semi-serious (auto)biography of Richard Feynman, telling us how a big scientist can be interested not only in his field of investigation but in the whole word around him. So he became a drummer (even playing in Rio carnival!), a safecracker, a mayan "expert", and many other "things".
Probably was (also) his eclectic personality and his curiosity to make him the great scientist he has been.
Thanks Mr. Feynman!
Un personaggio davvero straordinario!
What a life Feynman lived! I love the guy for so many reasons; his outlook on life, his playful nature, his intelligence, the importance of human issues he focuses on, the wonderful unimportance of problems he focuses on (safe-cracking, playing the bongos, joining a Samba band in a poor south American neighbourhood).
I think it's great how he is able to interact equally with all types of people.
He's one of my heroes...Continua
A classic book about Feynman, full of interesting, curious, entartaining and fun anectodes, told by himself.
More or less quoting the intro, it's amazing how a single man could live such a rich life.
What I love of the man, besides the huge achievements in physics (which alone could account for a rich life), are his openess of mind, wide-eyed curiosity, his ability to see and put things into the real life, the rich humor and the disenchanted actitude towards life.
